Currently both of them are used.

“Administrator” has about 110 entries

I would prefer to select “Administrator”.

Correctly and officially it is “Administrator” because “Admin” is a shortened version of administrator.

Ok, so a huge task is ahead of us :wink:

Having inclusion in mind, ‘administration’ is another option.

Makes it easier in other languages to establish a neutral expression.

edit:

This seems to be a good example of the discussion we had on gender neutral language and ways how to achieve it. What do you think, @jan ?
