Doing a company search for Finland: http://careers.stackoverflow.com/jobs/companies?location=finland, I'm confronted with rather strange place names:

enter image description here

Correct city names in these cases would be Tampere and Espoo. (See e.g. http://www.futuremark.com/contact if you don't believe me.)

Yes, the bug is probably in some location API that you use. (You have had localisation oddities with Finnish place names earlier.) Still, should be fixed, whoever is to blame.

    Poor Viima hasn't had such a good year and now resides in a fast-food stall at the station. Must you add salt to the wounds by pointing it out publicly?

    Yeah we actually can blame Yahoo again, this time for labeling Finnish railways stations and theaters as cities. As a thank you to Finland for bringing us Lordi and Sonata Arctica, I've manually fixed Tampere and Espoo in our geo database, so those company pages should now be displayed correctly.
