Hi there,

I have been working on Colon Seperator errors with the categorization project and noticed a few Finnish categories I was unsure if we have a solution for them.

S:t Michel is short for Sankt Michel in official writing according to Wikipedia. If I am trying to remove the colon seperator from the category name should I just use Sankt instead?

[[Category: Mikkeli (S:t Michel)]]

We have been using 'Sankt' for S:t in Swedish categories, because of the colon problem.

I suppose the same would go for Finland.

Not only that, but WikiTree discourages less frequently known (to the international community) abbreviations.
