#2628 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Get short forms of street names working for Germany.

In Germany people use most of the time the short form of street (Straße) which is 'Str.' . So for example you type 'Bleichstr.' instead of Bleichstraße.

Adam Kraft Str. => Adam Kraft Straße

I suggtest to check for 'str' and 'str.' at the and and expand it.

Just tried your query "Maxfeldstr. 5, Nürnberg" in Nominatim; it does work. Closing.
