See my earlier post. It depends on the language of your device and/or browser. Peter's original 3 words location is in Italian if I reset exactly the same spot.

Sorry if I haven't got fully into this thread as yet, but does this mean that for this system to work there are as many code variations for the same location as there are languages in the world? If so, doesn't a universal numeric grid reference still make sense for most purposes?

It still gives the correct location if you search for it in the map in say English whatever your home language may be, and I assume vice versa.
