Hello,

I found few inaccuracies in admin1CodesASCII.txt list and I would like to correct them, but I'm struggling on how to do that. The text file has names which are wrong but on the web it's correct.

Specific example for CZ.78:
text file: South Moravian Region
web: Jihomoravský kraj
correctly it must be: Jihomoravský kraj

Specific example for CZ.52:
text file: Hlavní Mesto Praha
web: Hlavní město Praha
correctly it must be: Hlavní město Praha

If you don't trust my correctness (though I'm a native CZ citizen ), you can check it here:
http://www.geopostcodes.com/czechrepublic_zip_codes
or on Wikipedia:
http://cs.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraje_v_%C4%8Cesku


Can you help me how to correct it, so that in next build of text file it will be correct?

Thank you for help


BTW: The problem with subdivision names is also here: http://www.geonames.org/CZ/administrative-division-czech-republic.html . There is an ackward name "Vysoc(ina Region". Any chance to correct names also here?

The text file is the English name. If you want to have the name in an other language than you have to use the information from the alternatename.txt file.

I compared the data and it makes sense to me now. Thank you
