<mapframe>: Map internationalization
Closed, DuplicatePublic


OSM supports map internationalization with, for instance, name:en tag in case of non-Latin names (Chinese, Greek, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew etc). Kartographer should be able to switch between local and Latin (at least English or Wiki language) writings if available. If an English name isn't yet available the local one should be given (succession: Wiki language -> English -> local) to make sure that all places are marked. Normally only a few specialists are able to read non-Latin characters. Names should be provided in a separate map layer to reduce the number of necessary map tiles.
