- Is OS Open Names multi-lingual?
Yes, it contains Welsh, Scots and Gaelic names where applicable.
- Can I open the file in Microsoft Excel?
In theory, yes, since Excel supports the CSV format in which we make it available. In practice, however, your computer might run very slowly unless you have installed a large amount of memory (8 Gb or more).
OS Open Names lists definitive place names, roads numbers and postcodes in Great Britain – 2.5 million accurate locations.
