Hi, I'm getting a problem with some of the eastern regions of France :
The page :
http://www.geonames.org/2997551/region-lorraine.html
seems correct

But when using :
http://ws.geonames.org/postalCodeSearchJSON?country=FR&postalcode_startsWith=54000
(Nancy, in Lorraine)
The "adminName1" value is "Lothringen" which is the german name.
The same apply to Alsace.

This is quite annoying as postalCodeSearch doesn't offer the language option.
I wonder why the german name is used instead of the parent country official language one.

Thanks in advance
marc
