The question pertains to translation of trademarks within articles; to my
knowledge, there's nothing wrong with us doing so, and I think this is done
in many Wikipedias.  But I'll defer to the list on this question.

Subject: change of registered TMs in Persian wikipedia
To: foundation-l-owner at lists.wikimedia.org

I'm one of Persian wikipedia users.for making pages same name of
trademarks (e.g. films ,games.etc.) we have several choices:
1-we use  same name and same alphabetical with trademark(e.g.
2-we same name but Persian Script(e.g. Call of duty-->کال آو دیوتی/KAL
3-we translate it(Prince of Persian-->شاهزاده ایرانی /SHAHZADE IRANI
means Prince of Persia)
Users of Persian wikipedia (with consequence) use third way usually
but I think change of trademarks is crime and maybe create legal
problem for the Foundation

Please tell us what we do or maybe i think wrong please tell me.
Thanks and best wishes
