Please spell Mongolia's capital correctly: Ulaanbaatar not Ulan Bator

0 have signed. Let’s get to 1,000!


Mongolia's capital is officially known as Ulaanbaatar. Due to old stylebooks, some media still spell it the wrong and incorrect way, i.e. Ulan Bator.

AP, Bloomberg, Reuters, WSJ, The Economist, Financial Times, BBC, Nikkei Asian Review all spell it correctly now. 

The non-complying major news outlets that remain are the New York Times, Xinhua. Do let us know of other instances, with possibly the contact details of the editor in charge.
