zh-min-nan Wikipedia: translation of namespace Module
Open, Stalled, LowPublic

Description

The namespaces Module (id 828) and its talk page Module talk (id 829) are currently localized as 模組 and 模組討論 (see api query).

The problems about this translation is:

  1. 討論 used by the talk page is inconsistent with thó-lūn which used by other talk pages;
  2. 模組 is inconsistent with the writing style on zh-min-nan Wikipedia which mainly uses a Latin alphabet system;
  3. It looks like the translation was just copied from zh version for convenience without regarding local ideas.

Before the community of zh-min-nan came up with a local translation for "Module", the namespaces would be better renamed like below for consistency:

模組 -> Module
模組討論 -> Module thó-lūn
