Multiple IF condition with text in CALC

I want a cell (B1, in this example) to have different values depending on another cell (A1). I write manually the value for A1, but I want the value of B1 to be automatic. For example:

If I write "London" in A1, B1 will be "UK"; if A1=Paris, B1=France; if A1=Lisbon, B1=Portugal and so on for 5 cities/countries.

I know the function =IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("London";A1));"UK";"XX"), but I want to use 5 conditions in the same cell.

Could you help me, please?

Thanks both! I know how to use VLOOKUP with numbers, as in the m.a.riosv's example, but no with words... I'm getting Erro:511 and Erro:512.

Take a look to the attached sample, with inner arrays it's easy with VLOOKUP or HLOOKUP.

You only need to put the string between quotes like

Would VLOOKUP not work for you? It would allow you to fairly simply expand from your current five to a large number of possible options.
