From an internal report:
Many language & place names are misspelled in Hindi
1. “German” is “ज़र्मन” (should be “जर्मन”) – extra nukta
2. “Finnish” is “फिनिश” (should be “फ़िनिश”) – missing nukta
3. “Korean” is “कोरियन्” (should be “कोरियन”) – extra halant
4. “Hong Kong” is spelled “हांगकांग” as a region but “हाँगकाँग” as a currency exemplar city. The latter should change to match the former (which is correct).
There are many, many other errors. The whole list of languages and place names needs to be proofread.
I have feedback from our HIndi expert on this. However, his list has more than 400 changes, many of which are to use consistent orthographic conventions throughout instead of the current mix of different conventions. A change of this magnitude probably requires buy-in from vetters at other organizations so I pushing this to CLDR 32. The problems are not a regression.
I have split this into two parts. This part 1 covers the higher-priority name fixes and/or fixes about which I had no further questions; the remaining fixes are split off into .
