Categories of Korean provinces[edit]

2012-04-16, categories of provinces of North an South Korea were tagged to be renamed to English names. Up to now, none of these requests were opposed nor supported. These categories have hundreds subcategories! Is it necessary to make such massive rename? --ŠJů (talk) 20:07, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

  • Comment: Seems fair enough. There is no consistent scheme, but generally loacal terms for administrative subdivisions are frequently seen. Most European languages use it throughout or at least in part. But redirects must be made for easier sorting/categorization. In the end, both terms should lead to the proper category.
