Don’t get confused: most of the official names exist in French and in Dutch, like for example street names. Mostly these are a literal translation of each other, however sometimes they are not. Watch for example out for the train station Brussels south, in french this is Bruxelles-Midi, in Dutch Brussel-Zuid.
