It's a robot that visits construction sites, asking when it's going to be finished. It'll insert the data, plugs it into a computer using USB and it'll automatically be uploaded to Skyscrapercity.

A quick browse of European news shows it's also Juan Carlos in other languages, for example in Norwegian, German, Dutch, Italian, French and Polish

There's isn't really a rule. Juan Carlos stays the same in Italian, but Beatrice of Netherlands and Alberto of Monaco are italianized, just like Elizabeth II always goes "Elisabetta". Funny thing is her son Charles goes "Carlo" but her nephews grandsons remain "William" and "Henry", never "Guglielmo" and "Enrico"...

I suggest, Chris, that you delete all these messages about him on here. We don't want to cause unnecessary damage. And we'll just continue to put up with him.
yeah, i have noticed that. i think that guy has the language barrier, so that's why his posts look annoying, he is using the same simple expression all the time (when will it be built?), but his intention is actually entering some conversation and discussion.

(i admit, few times i got annoyed by that, too).

Good point, I never thought of that. Perhaps I'll invite him for a drink at out Roadside Rest Area. He's genuine and deserves a chance to be one of us.

Perhaps we should organize a SSC meeting and invite him

There is a relative huge site in Slovakia devoted to public transport. It also attracts fellows like himself. Once there has been similarly annoying user. At one meeting, we have figured out it was 8 years old kid

Sometimes he has quite a rich vocabulary.

Thank you for that pronouncement. :-P

(But is being one of us really a reward?)

He very well might be. We just don't know. We need to know a bit more about him before we judge, bully and reject him.

"Nephews" and "grandchildren" in Italian are translated to the same word "nipoti".

It is obvious, Romanian and Italian language has common roots. And there existed the "Romanian empire" () on the territory of current Italy, didn't it?

Talking about royal head names translation, in Serbian it used to be translated but this was abandoned about 50 years ago. Now we translate only names of the popes (John Paul II=Jovan Pavle II).
