I was uploading some guides and found:

in Greece in the province of Achaia two names for the same city:

Xylokastro and Xylokastron

These days it is more usual the use Greek names without the letter 'n'.

So you can delete Xylokastron.

You have also got: Den Haag and The Hague in the Netherlands. One city, two names.

I found something similar... you have two entries for Florence, Italy:







Toscana and Tuscany are the same thing (Tuscany being the anglicized version). I'm all for calling places what the people who actually live there call it, so my vote goes to keeping Toscana, although in my part of the world Tuscany is far more commonly used.

What's GLOBO policy on this?
