you're right, Münich deleted.

Is the name of the "place" correct as it is now or should we have both "Munich" and "München"? Or just one (and which one?)?

lethe | 13555 comments I usually don't bother with locations, characters, etc., so I'm not sure what the conventions are.

I remember rivka saying that it was OK for character names to be added in different languages. Maybe that also counts for locations, but that would mean two entries, one for Munich and one for München. Having both in one entry looks wrong to me.
