Hi. I just found this category in Swedish Wikipedia with ~250 articles based on Geonames items about geography of Moldova, and, unfortunately, a big part of them have wrong names. Do you have here any tools/scripts for mass edits - corrections?
All items with patterns presented below should be corrected as follows:
"Gora %name%" (from Russian: Гора) ==> "Dealul %name%"
"Les %name%" (from Russian: Лес) ==> "Pădurea %name%"
"Port %name%" (from Russian: Порт) ==> "Portul %name%"
"Dolina %name%" (from Russian: Долина) ==> "Valea %name%"

Many of them also need additional checking, because as I see these are just the transliterated forms of Russian names of these toponyms (Moldova was part of USSR until 1991), but the correct native names are needed instead.
