I hope wikimedians, with their experience of NPOV, are setting a good 
example at CLDR as well!

Dear translators,

As you are working your way through the data and debate different 
options through the forum, please do remember to stay calm and 
professional when addressing your fellow translators. We have seen a 
few—thankfully very few—cases where translators let their emotions get 
the best of them. It’s OK to disagree. It’s OK to argue your case. It’s 
not OK to be rude or to question other translators" competence. In 
short, treat others as you would like them to treat you.

It"s also important to remember that in CLDR we aim to reflect—not 
direct—what is in most customary usage in your locale. For more 
information on customary usage, see 
There may be times when this data may not correspond to your own opinion 
of what it should be: please aim for what is, not what should be.

Happy voting,
CLDR Technical Committee
