> "Wikimedia? But isn't it called Wikipedia, with a P?"
> Translating this message brings this up yet again for the

> Wikimedia, Wikimedia. The word appears six times until the word
> "Wikipedia" finally pops up. Nobody knows what this Wikimedia thing,

> no-one will actually understand what i am translating.
> I, and many other people, wish that the the WMF was renamed to WPF.
> Until that happens, every time the WMF releases such a big message,
> please, at least think about this problem and word the messages
> accordingly.
> Thank you.
