comment Official translation for “南繁”?
@Stan The English on good journals are also kind of poor. I also contributed some poor English :( When things come to this kind of translation of names, people tend to "invent" a translation themselves if they cannot find a well accepted one. So sometimes, several translations may be invented by different authors for the same term. It is hard to say which would be well accepted until after several years. Also, whether the well accepted translation sounds right to a native English speaker remains questionable.

comment Official translation for “南繁”?
As a Chinese who has also written several research papers, I can tell that the English translation in Chinese journals cannot always be trusted.

Well, if it is used in a company name, then only the company can give the "official" translation.

comment 地 pronunciation variation
Peking Opera (you wrote as Chinese Opera in your answer. China has too many different kinds of opera) is quite different from pop song. Peking Opera does have its only rules on pronunciation of characters. In Peking opera, no only the tones, but also the pronunciation itself will change.

comment 地 pronunciation variation
This is because tone are realized by pitch change, and pitch is constrained in songs. So when a character corresponds to only one note, its pitch would be flat and it sounds like 1st tone (this only flat tone in Mandarin).

comment correct pinyin and pronunciation for 太阳
@Stan "tai4 yang2" sounds normal to me, but "yue4 linag4" does not. So for 月亮, a neutral tone is a must. That's why 现代汉语词典 has the pronunciation like that.
