GoogleChrome "translates" French places?!
A weird one! I am zoomed in on a part of France. Some placenames seem to have been (mis-)translated into English!
Example: "Rennes" has become "reindeer", and right next to it there is a place called "Windows".
Clicking an untranslated place does what is expected: shows the forecast ribbon. Clicking a translated place does nothing.
It looks like a glitch; I can't reproduce it. It just happens sometimes. I am filing it as a bug report because it is unexpected behavior.

Hello, what do you mean by "translated", do you use any translator plugin? Please post a screenshot showing the error.
@korina - It looks like Google Translate is doing this. I managed to reproduce:
- in windy.com, go to https://www.windy.com/48.113/-1.539?radar,48.057,-1.432,10,m:eZmaf6n
- right-click the Windy.com at the top of the window to bring up the context menu
- select Translate to English
- a popup shows "Detected Language" and "English". Select "Detected language" and look closely to the image. Then select "English" and seem some placenames change. Eg "Vitre" becomes "Window", "Bruz" becomes "Turquoise", and so on.
Just in case the above does not work: https://photos.app.goo.gl/iTM88BhMDNB8owsy6
By the way I was not aware that Google Translate was active at all on this site. I don't recall turning it on. Maybe Google was trying to be "helpful" in the background?
@harryday Hello, we are not responsible for the translation result of Google Translator for Windy. If you do not want to see the incorrect city names, do not use the Google Translate extension.
@korina I agree: you may not be responsible. But you do now know about it. So, maybe an entry in a FAQ somewhere?
@harryday Hello, we have never had any complaint about this. If you want to see city names in your own language, you can switch languages in the settings.
