When they opened the IKEA in Villesse, the company took the official decision to employ some Slovenian-speaker sellers since that store would also have covered the Slovenian market (even if the municipality of Villesse isn't bilingual).

bilingual signage (polish/german) in parts of Upper Silesia can provide some weird results

Is that in Poland? If so, I didn't know they did bilingual signage.

But even if they're signing in two languages, I don't see the point in posting a place name twice when it's identical in the two....

It is, thats in the Opole/Oppeln Voivodeship in Upper Silesia, there are some villages where some Germans weren´t expelled after WW2, probably because the whole region was mostly bilingual before WW2 also... As far as i know - im not from the region nor from Poland - a village with more than 20% inhabitans of a minority has the right to put up bilingual signs.

Maybe our friends from Poland can clarify this better?

It's called "cold vodka" in Polish, but "cold water" in German. I wonder why

Some pictures I took in Sri Lanka in September 2012. The signs are in Sinhala, Tamil (iirc) & English.

I'm sure of seeing San Pelayo/San Pelayo in Asturias (Northern Spain) once .

Grammatically yes, wódka (vodka) is a diminutive of woda (water) in Polish - just as Russian водка (vodka) and вода (water). However, nobody uses wódka in the sense of "little water" anymore. It must have been different when the village Zimna Wódka got its name.
