Rename request (see category description)[edit]

It's not necessary to remove the diacritical marks, even en:José López Portillo uses them. -- User:Docu at 04:47, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but that's an article, which is like a gallery in Commons. Articles can be redirected (try, for instance en:Jose Lopez Portillo), but Categories can't, and they should be named in English. For that reason, my guess was that a Category should not be named using diacritical marks, but I would like to hear from someone with more experience with this policy. - Esteban Zissou (talk) 12:10, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
Galleries have in Commons have nothing to do with Wikipedia articles. They are just in the same namespace. BTW en:José López Portillo is an English language article not a redirect. If you want, you could create a redirect at Category:Jose Lopez Portillo, just use {{category redirect|José López Portillo}} -- User:Docu at 15:01, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
I think you are a bit confused on the matter. Check out Help:Category#People ("Some notable people may have so much content depicting them, or names that are so well known, that it may be worth creating a category or gallery using their name, such as Category:Albert Einstein.[...] Use the common English-language spelling and word order for the category or gallery name; it's a pity to force this on all the world's names, but as noted elsewhere, we use English-language categories on Commons to work around a software limitation."). - Esteban Zissou (talk) 19:38, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
What you highlight means mainly that you should use Hu Jintao as category name and not "胡锦涛" or "Jintao Hu", that's all. The part about "gallery name" shouldn't be in there. (Obviously, you don't have to attempt to translate it to "Joseph Wolfson Smallport" either) -- User:Docu at 20:11, 13 December 2009 (UTC)
