"Bernie is center-left in Europe."

Center-left and these positions are always very arbitary and depend on each country and even then on which time you are looking at as everything slightly shifts permanently in the one or other directions. Some of his positions are not even to be considered left or right as he tries to get things which are undisputed standard elsewhere like minimum days off and mandatory healthcare.

A politician I'd consider as far left in my country would be Sarah Wagenknecht, and as a party, "Die Linke" at least this is as far left as it gets in parliament and public scope. There are smaller groups even further to the left, but none of these have any political impact in everday life and I'd struggle to remember any names of them.
