Incorrect version of Chinese on iOS

Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):
My phone’s language is set to simplified Chinese, and when I am using the app, I see the traditional Chinese names for certain species. (Example: red eared slider, but it happens with more taxa)

When using the website and manually setting the language to Simplified Chinese it displays fine.

I know that iNaturalist integrates with Wikipedia for certain species, and Wikipedia does not have separate pages (kinda) for traditional vs simplified, so perhaps that could be contributing to the issue.

Step 1: Change iPhone language to simplified Chinese

Step 2: Open iNaturalist app

Step 3: Search for “Trachemys scripta elegans”


This is a known bug


Thanks for the bug report that nudged me to look at this again - should be fixed in the next release.
