I'm trying to understand how alternate name works regarding with this two ID for Péruwelz :
Result ID 2789162, using the searchJSON API with fr language, I get :
I was worried not to get the same spelling for name and adminName4. As I can understand, the problem comes from ID 2789163, so I have deleted the fr alternate name on this ID and I have to wait for the API update.
On the ID 2789163, someone has defined an alternate name with an empty lang (this case is not documented in https://www.geonames.org/manual.html). Is it a way to enable to get result with different spelling without any impact on translation ?
Moreover, this alternate name is equal to the name so that I thing it should be changed without accent in alternate name or deleted if useless.
N.B.: Spelling "Péruwelz" is confirmed on this page : http://www.peruwelz.be/
