  • Description:
    • Searched with a text “bengalore” with findAddressCandidates api with langCode=EN
    • Even after mentioning langCode=EN, it gives non English characters.
    • Even in few cases, where it gave multiple address, in one address, it responds with correct English and in another address for the same string it gives non English character.
    • Check the Region in the response ("Region": "Karnātaka") 
  • ESRI Call:
