Change $wgSitename for Dutch Wikinews to Wikinieuws
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Recently the Dutch Wikinews started in their own wiki. In the past weeks the logo has been localised ( T170984 ) as well as well as the project namespace ( T172211 ), both now reflect the name of Wikinews in Dutch: Wikinieuws.

On the wiki however, on multiple places the English name is shown (Wikinews) and not the Dutch name. This seems the result of {{SITENAME}} which is still not set on the Dutch name. Therefore: please change the SITENAME of Wikinews in Dutch (nlwikinews) to: Wikinieuws

If this change also results in that the labels of the wikis also change for Wikinews on Wikidata, that would be great. Otherwise please also change it there for Wikinews in Dutch or let us know how to have it changed there. The labels of the wikis can be seen when viewing a Wikidata item in Dutch:

I don't think this needs an specific discussion as it's just translating the sitename.
