ConventionsEdit

  • In biographies, identify the subject as either a Cuban, Cuban-American, or of Cuban ancestry, depending on how that person identifies him/herself.
  • Accentuation: In biographies, use accents if the subject him/herself used them in when spelling their name.
  • Spanish words/orgs with Spanish names: Should be italicized and followed by an English translation and approximation the first time they appear in an article.
