Therein lies the beauty of standardized common names, the taxonomy may change but the name stays the same.
As for other languages, and other countries, a similar compilation for Mexico (see citation below) has been available since 1994, and other lists are currently in preparation. As new standardized names lists become available, it is in the best interest of us all to use them. The greatest benefit to the widespread use of these names will not be within the herpetological community, but rather outside of it.
