I spotted out a little inaccuracy in the Entry about Germany. Since I'm rather new here, I don't really know whom to address, but you were the first in the list of researchers.
The "Bergische Land" shouldn't be translated as "mountainous territory", since only a small part of it lies in the mountains. The region's name is derived from the Duchy Berg, which indeed started as a small mountainous area, but grew and incorporated many non-mountainous territories over the centuries. Germans (like me) understand "Bergisches Land" as a proper name and not as a description.
