I found a wrong writing for a mountain ridge in AUSTRIA/Vorarlberg leading to the "MÖRZELSPITZE" with Laubachgrad. I was hiking there about 3 weeks ago. The correct writíng should be Laubachgrat. So, I was quite happy being able to change the wrong to the correct writing, i.e. from grad to grat (-grad means "degree" in german, -grat means "ridge" in german). Funny enough, when I look up now, the writing is still wrong down to the scale of 1:30. When I go further down to say 1:20, 1:10 or even as low as 1:5, it is only then that appears the corrected and correct spelling, i.e. Laubachgrat. So, why is that so??

Your path is here, and your spelling correction is already visible at some map scales.

There's a fairly detailed old answer here which explains how the "standard" map gets updated. It's still mostly correct. What is slowing things down currently is a map style update. You don't need to do anything - the map tiles will catch up.
