The zh-hant version of 中国 is 中國 (see page title) while the curmb still displays the former (中国). Please somehow apply

Question: if an item in breadcrumb articles has -{T| }- or {{DISPLAYTITLE: }} in that article, should we display the -{T| }- or {{DISPLAYTITLE: }} version, or still the (possibly machine-converted version of) page name, in breadcrumbs?

This is a question for all wikis, not just wikis with Language Converter. It's currently impossible to disinguish customized titles set with -{T| }- and {{DISPLAYTITLE: }}, so it's either "yes" or "no" for both -{T| }- and {{DISPLAYTITLE: }}.

FWIW: Using -{T| }- or {{DISPLAYTITLE: }} seems actually easier, or cheaper.

... and from my view this is easy enough for GCI, when the question above is answered.

Because it isn't very important.

Just got the idea to add a new configuration setting to switch between the behavior to use converted (and maybe DISPLAYTITLE:) title, or to use the original page name.
