Iv heard that city names and names of famous places will not be changed to the new PINYIN. Any news on this? Taipei is not going to become TAibei and Kaohsiung is not going to become gaoxiung or whatever? Whats the news?
they did change the name of BOMBAY (in india of course) to its original name of MUMBAI.
ARe they gonna do something similar here? IM not too sure i could get used to Kaohsiung becoming Gaoxiung for example?? And i probably spelled that wrong too
i mean ROME is still ROME and not ROMA, MILAN is still MILAN and not MILANO, FLORENCE is still FLORENCE and not FIRENZE, VENICE is still VENICE and not VENEZIA like the locals call them.
But then? in those cases? I wonder if they really should be renamed to their real names as the Italians call them.
