Sorry, but categories should have English-language
How can you decide that?
How can someone find "Bridges in Athens" if
the category title was written
in Greek? Or "Palaces in Istambul"? Or "Rivers in India" (and what
should we use in this last case?).
Categories redirect works quite well, so this argument is not valid.
See for example http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Monte_Bianco
And category redirects do not work well, because they
divide the media and
cause more and more confusion.
My mother tongue is not English, but it's clear to
me that we must have a
lingua franca in order to understand each other.
If a find a picture of Teheran and I want to categorize it I'll have to find
the correct Persian name of the correct category? That doesn't make sense to
me. People should know that is no offence to use English in order to achieve
a greater good: communication and understanding.
