Bug ID: 62372
           Summary: Localized name of Special page should take precedence
                    over normalised form
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Internationalization
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

Tried adding the Swedish translation "Prefixindex" to the special page
"PrefixIndex" at Special:AdvancedTranslate

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Log in to
1. Go to
2. Add "Prefixindex" as Swedish translation
3. Go to end of page and click "save"

Actual Results:  
Get the message:

''Translation '''Prefixindex''' for
Prefixindex] is not in normalised form, which is '''PrefixIndex'''''

Expected Results:  
Prefixindex to be added as the Swedish localised version of PrefixIndex

Reproducible: Always

Although the case-differing name works case normalisation to the canonical form
still happens. Localized versions should be possible and have precedence, even
if they coincide (up to differing case) with canonical ones.
