>Netherlands to drop nickname
荷兰宣布改名为'尼德兰'

The Dutch government announced that it will officially drop their country's nickname, "Holland," and only use the name The Netherlands, in an effort to rebrand their "international image".
荷兰政府宣布将正式停止使用"荷兰"这一名字,仅用"尼德兰"作为国名,此举旨在重塑该国的"国际形象"。

The government is spending $220,000 and, come Jan 1, companies, embassies, ministries and universities will only refer to the country using its official name.
自明年1月1日起,荷兰国内的企业、使馆、政府部门和大学只能使用其官方名称"尼德兰"来指代该国。

The name Holland only refers to two of the country's 12 provinces in the whole country, North-Holland, where Amsterdam is located, and South-Holland, the home of Rotterdam and The Hague.
为了更名计划,政府将耗资22万美元。"荷兰"这个名字仅指该国12个省中的两个省,即阿姆斯特丹所在的"北荷兰省",以及鹿特丹和海牙所在的"南荷兰省"。

However, the nickname is often used to describe the entire country, officially called the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
然而,这一名称却经常被用来指代整个国家。荷兰的官方全称为尼德兰王国。

It is reportedly part of a plan to draw tourists to other parts of the country as some cities battle overtourism.
据报道,更名计划也是为了吸引游客到荷兰其他地方旅游。荷兰一些城市正面临"过度旅游"这一难题。
