When I look at the data in alternatenames.txt I don't see data for some columns. From the description in readme.txt I'm expecting to see
But for most records only alternateNameId , geonameid, alternate name have any data. The crucial field "isolanguage" is blank for most records, and without knowing the isolanguage it's hard to make use of the name. Why is this?
I just filter out the records without an isocode when I import the data.
