Nation Renaming Guide

Postby Moderation » Wed Aug 26, 2015 11:52 am

As per Section 5 of the Game Rules, the Nation Renaming Guide outlines the acceptable languages for nation renaming based on Cultural Protocols.

On the left hand side is the primary common English name for each nation. In brackets are appropriate alternative English common names if any exist. For all nation renamings, the common English name will be placed in brackets at the end. By default this will be the primary name but players may stipulate in the nation renaming bill if they wish this to be one of the alternative common names. On the right hand side are the appropriate languages for the nation name. In brackets next to each language will be the nation's name in that language if it is different from the English. A few real world examples to illustrate this system:
Eswatini (alt. Swaziland): Swazi (eSwatini) or English
Germany: German (Deutschland)
Greece (alt. Hellas): Greek (Ελλάδα, translit: Ellada or Ελλάς, translit: Ellas)
Japan: Japanese (日本, translit: Nippon or Nihon)
Luxembourg: Luxembourgish (Lëtzebuerg), French or German (Luxemburg)
Thailand (alt. Siam): Thai (ประเทศไทย, translit: Prathet Thai)


Players are generally required to rename their nation using one of the languages stipulated below, utilising Google Translate and other translation tools. If they are unable to find a suitable translation tool then they should post a request in the Language assistance thread. If no suitable translation can be found after a seven-day period then Moderation will permit an English translation of the nation name to be implemented instead.

If you believe that the Nation Renaming Guide should be amended then you are welcome to leave feedback in the relevant thread. As a final note, please remember that Moderators are not linguists and while we will endeavour to check a nation renaming request is in an appropriate language, we can't guarantee that it will be entirely accurate.
