lang zh-classical is invalid
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT

Description

Various WD items (eg Niger) have labels in language zh-classical (as well as many other zh variants). This lang tag is invalid.

Use just zh or use a custom subtag like zh-x-classic (leading x-, and every subtag must be max 8 chars).

Event Timeline

The correct code for Classical Chinese is lzh.

It looks like some of these have been added by a bot, e.g. https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:Diff/1176117811 - it would be a good idea to ask the bot owner to clean up their mistakes.

I think otherwise this is covered by T44396 and T102533

Can this be marked as a duplicate of one of those tasks?

I have recently moved all uses of the code "zh-classical" for labels/aliases and descriptions to use "lzh" instead, if this helps anyone.
