Summary0000847: Geonames suddenly is in German
DescriptionAfter a hard disk crash I had to install XP anew on a new hard disk and of course GeoSetter too. Previously Geonames produced the names of Provinces etc in the language of the country, e.g. Cataluna. Now, in the new install, I get "Katalonien".
How can I persuade Geonames to use the language of the country?

Regards, Alexander
Additional InformationI use version 3.4.22 beta

do you search the option "Use Current Language for Countries (instead of English)" in the tab "Data Preferences" of the settings?

As far as I know there is no other option to change language settings of the GeoNames result.

It makes no difference whether the option is checked or not. In both cases I get as result for coordinates N41°59'5.65" - E2°49'43.97", using Ctrl+E, "Katalonien" (German) instead of "Cataluna". In my previous setup I used to get the Spanish names, which I prefer.
