Right name?[edit]

Charter is surely a mistranslation (Karta here means card, not charter). I know it's not our original mistranslation, but I don't think it's that widespread that we have to use it. I propose we move this article to the Polish name (Karta Polaka), until the real world decides what English name to give it.--Kotniski (talk) 13:43, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, I've moved it, and also reworded it to refer to cards rather than charters (except in relation to outside sources which use the term charter).--Kotniski (talk) 09:28, 21 February 2009 (UTC)
Doesn't "karta" mean both "card" and "charter"? (cf. Wielka Karta Swobód, Karta 77, Europejska Karta Samorządu Lokalnego) (talk) 01:11, 20 March 2016 (UTC)
