Allow translated special page name to be the same as canonical name, with case difference
Closed, InvalidPublic


Tried adding the Swedish translation "Prefixindex" to the special page "PrefixIndex" at Special:AdvancedTranslate

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Log in to

  1. Go to
  2. Add "Prefixindex" as Swedish translation
  3. Go to end of page and click "save"

Actual Results:
Get the message:

''Translation '''Prefixindex''' for [ Prefixindex] is not in normalised form, which is '''PrefixIndex'''''

Expected Results:
Prefixindex to be added as the Swedish localised version of PrefixIndex

Reproducible: Always

Although the case-differing name works case normalisation to the canonical form still happens. Localized versions should be possible and have precedence, even if they coincide (up to differing case) with canonical ones.
