Hi Michael, with regards to the last point, I don't see a way to remove "(Plurinational State of)" but not remove "(until 2011)" in a generalised way using a single pipeline, as these phrases are both denoted by parentheses and consist of alphanumeric characters. Does that mean that you want us to manually remove (hard-code) all "state of" phrases?
