Fair use rationale for Image:Karolinska logo.gif[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Karolinska logo.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Origin of name[edit]

There is no reference given for the claim here that the name of the institute goes back to the soldiers of Carl XII, who reigned 100 years earlier. Seems more reasonable that it was named after King Carl XIII, who was on the throne when it was founded. It seems I have also read or heard that somewhere. Where did that info about the much earlier king's soldiers come from? SergeWoodzing (talk) 10:50, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

translation of name[edit]

1. WP uses common names as found in English language sources. I am therefore not sure that the use of the Swedish name is even correct as the main title--this will need checking. (see WP:COMMON 2. Details about translation in put in the lede sentence confuse the issue. Noone expects a commoly used translated name of an institution to be philologically exact, but rather to read idiomatically in the target language (English in this case). The place for a discussion on the significance of the Swedish incorporated article is as a footnote; it would be much clearer there DGG ( talk ) 00:48, 15 June 2015 (UTC)

I agree that the article should be moved to an English-language title, probably Karolinska Institute as the more direct translation Caroline Institute doesn't appear to be widely used in modern sources. The word "Institutet" simply means "Institute" and it seems odd to use the Swedish word as the title of an article in the English language Wikipedia. --Bjerrebæk (talk) 20:03, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

Karolinska InstitutetKarolinska Institute – Per the above discussion ("translation of name"), the article should be moved to an English-language title. The word "Institutet" simply means Institute and the name "Karolinska Institute" appears to be common in English language sources. Bjerrebæk (talk) 20:07, 16 February 2017 (UTC)

  • Support per nomination. —Roman Spinner (talk)(contribs) 23:03, 16 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Strongly oppose. Karolinska Institutet uses its original Swedish name as a brand standard for all communications in English, as clearly explained in the Profile guide [1] (page 9, "The name is not to be translated into other languages") Matasg 00:29, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support per dominant English usage. Doremo (talk) 03:25, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
    • irrelevant source, as Google Ngram Viewer only counts publications printed before the year 2008. Karolinska Institutet's brand strategy which regards the usage of only the original name was published in 2014 [2]. Further, Virtual International Authority File, used by world's major libraries (including the Library of Congress), relates to the original name Karolinska Institutet only [3] Matasg 19:48, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
      • The Swedish institute's "brand strategy" is irrelevant as far as English usage is concerned. Doremo (talk) 21:14, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
  • Support swap per WP:UCRN, Karolinska Institutet becomes a natural {{R from alternative language|sv|en}}. — Sam Sailor 18:20, 24 February 2017 (UTC)
