On the map you can right click the mouse and look for features.

When you are in certain countries the right name is not mentioned for the admin_levels.

For example:
Stadsgrens should be Gemeentegrens in the Netherlands
Staatsgrens should be Provinciegrens in the Netherlands.

This is probably because of the list.

[11 admin_level values for specific countries](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:boundary%3Dadministrative#11_admin_level_values_for_specific_countries)

This look very strange for people, who are searching, and expect to see something different border. admin_levels.

As [mentioned](https://forum.openstreetmap.org/viewtopic.php?pid=673182#p673182) in the forum by someone who keep the admin_levels in the Netherlands up to date, he write: 
This is a design failure, admin_levels can change for different countries and can not be translated with a single list, worldwide.

Hope you all can change this.
