    This address if i type it reverse it works only if I specify postal code. 

    But using greek characters works only with correct order..

    ανδρούτσου  οδυσσέα , 601 00 Katerini, Greece 

    οδυσσέα ανδρούτσου  , 601 00 Katerini, Greece   (this doesnt)

    But using us/english

    Odyssea Androutsou , 601 00 Katerini, Greece

    Androutsou  Odyssea , 601 00 Katerini, Greece

    works .

    Is there a workaround for this ? Tested with some other providers and dont seem to have this issue... 

    People use to reverse the street name sometimes especially when it is a name or date.

  • There is no work around for this. Note when using non-English characters be sure to encode your addresses so that the special characters do not get corrupted in the request. Also, when using greek be sure to set the culture of the request accordingly. Finally, the Bing maps consumer site is a bad place to test addresses as it doesn't fully implement the Bing Maps REST services and tends to be less accurate than using the Bing Maps REST services directly.
