Searching with Country Names in different languages
April 27, 2006
The geonames search function now understands Country Names in different languages and has better support for non-english search queries.
Here some examples :
Country name Italy :
Country name Italien :
Country name Italia :
Country name इटली :
Country name ايطاليا :
The geonames search engine is able to correctly identify the country name in different languages and returns the correct result.
(For most countries at least, there are some country names for which it does not yet work. Can you find some of these exceptions?)
Edit May 14 2006 : The problem I was referring to is fixed now, glad no one found it ;-)
