"Doktor" in Germany missing at the table atm.


"There is a Language-Rule that if a place/streetname ends on -er it will be writen seperatly, so "Berliner Straße" is correct, but "Berlinerstraße" is not. It would be great if for the name finder "Berliner Str." equals "Berlinerstr." and "Berliner Straße". "

As far as I've learned in school (read: I'm not sure, this is very long ago), that's wrong. The difference is not based on the "-er"-ending, but on "Berlin" being a place. If the road would be named for Mr. Berliner, it would be Berlinerstraße.

That is true: if "Berliner" is a person's name then the street would indeed havve to be "Berlinerstraße" (arnepe, from Berlin)


Is the abbreviations feature implemented? Most of the abbreviations listed in this page are marked as not implemented.

If yes, how often is it updated? By who?

Cleanup Request

Seems like Nominatim isn't been updated for a long time. I think this page should have general instructions on how updating the code to handle country-specific names. vgeorge 29 july 2011

Page translation

Hint: put the subsections in sub pages and translate main page. — Alexandre Magno (talk) 00:38, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
