Store Locator

I am having a hard time figuring out how the store locator is supposed to work.

I have setup 2 brick stores, entered city and country and pinpointed them on the map.

Created a block and enabled it on a page. So far so good.

In order to find a store, a user must search for the exact city, store name or country in English!

My site is in german. Doing a search for Deutschland yields no result but Germany does.

Entering a city other than one of a store, gives no results.

That is funny behaviour.

A user will enter a zipcode or city and expects to be shown the nearest store.


CScart people, is this by design? If so, please improve it.
