    I know it's been mentioned before but I hope the next patch/DLC/whatever corrects the Australian City name BALLAARAT (wrong!) to its proper name BALLARAT (correct!).

    I'm an Australian and the incorrect spelling irritates me. I'm sure American players would be appalled to see WISHINGTON. How about BIMINGHAM for English players? And French players would riot if they came across DIJJON!

    At least the Toronto city-state isn't spelled "Tronno" based on the local pronunciation of the city's name.

    It was know as Ballaarat for 139 years and has been Ballarat for 23 years in all honesty I think it could be either in the game file and I am not too fussed either way, but if you don't like it just edit the name and drop the second a.

    Considering people from Birmingham cannot spell one feels it would be rather fitting. Probably the most correct spelling is Brumingham

    But you never get the city names, or any other words, from the countries of the former USSR/Warsaw Pact wrong. As they used to say back during the Cold War, "How can you mispronounce these words? They're pronounced like they're spelt." :p

    In the German version of Civ VI, Wroclaw is known as Breslau. In the Italian and Spanish versions, it's Breslavia. In all other versions, it's Wroclaw.
