vi: typo and mistranslation of American Samoa

Reported by: fredrik Owned by: fredrik
Component: main Data Locale: vi
Phase: dsub Review: kristi
Weeks: Data Xpath:


Per an internal report:

US: American Samoa
VI: Đảo Somoa thuộc Mỹ

The current translation of “American Samoa” contains typo “Somoa”. Furthermore, it should be changed into “Quần đảo Samoa thuộc Mỹ” because it’s a group of islands, not only one island, or it can be changed into “Samoa thuộc Mỹ” for short in VI. Both suggested versions are commonly used in Vietnam.


Additional note: The translation of territory "Samoa" does not contain the typo.

Shouldn't this be a forum posting in v34?

Replying to kristi:

Shouldn't this be a forum posting in v34?

Perhaps, but the "Somoa" typo is not really something that's subjective, it's just a typo.

Based on the advice from our linguist, I'm changing it to "Samoa thuộc Mỹ" per the reporter's secondary suggestion.

  • Correcting the typo from "Somoa"
  • Omitting "Đảo".

This way we avoid making the distinction of one or several islands, which can't be said to be of material interest, and we match other resources, for example Wikipedia.
