How can we improve Azure Maps?

Ability to get POI information using it's ID and the desired Language

When building multilingual apps, we need to retrieve the POI name in a specific language using its id.

For example, in a social app. I check into a resturant. I found the POI using fuzzy search and language was specified to be EN.

A friend, who is checking my location, is using my app with a Arabic interface. I will need to call Azure Maps again to get the name in Arabic. I have the ID of the place form the first check in. it would be easier to use that ID to get the value.

The only current solution is to Fuzzy Search again, using the location coordinates and it's english name requesting the result to be in Arabic (which is an overkill and can be expensive, performance and cost).
