Automatically redirect users to the correct category in the UploadWizard (Wikimedia Commons)
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

When you wish to upload something to Wikimedia Commons but aren't 100% familiar with the the appropriate name of the category you often get a list of categories based on what you search 🔍. However if you would add a category that's only a redirect the files you upload will end up in the redirect and will have to be moved either manually or automatically by a bot, let's say the category is called "Bridges in Brazil" but you add it to "Brazilian bridges" then the files end up in the latter category, one way for redirects to work better (and to actually be a benefit to the users rather than a sometimes confusing hassle) would be that even if you click on "Brazilian bridges" that the UploadWizard will then automatically "autocorrect" it as "Bridges in Brazil".
