I noticed that there are no German umlauts in any of the company names or addresses in the PermID organizations database. For example "Bank Julius Baer & Co AG" instead of "Bank Julius Bär & Co AG".
It seems that there is some kind of normalization in place to "translate" ae to ä, oe to ö and so forth.
This is quite general though and leads to errors. "Isräl" for example should not find me companies with "israel" in the name.
Is it planned to NOT remove the umlauts that probably are in the original source in the first place? Or is there some other - more elegant - workaround that I can't think of?
