Generating map tiles with international/latinized text?


I want to generate map tiles that uses english/latinized text as much possible, instead of displaying a mix of scripts such as cyrillic, arabic, chinese et.c. which is the default for the OpenStreetMap style.

I know that significant work on internationalization has been carried out in the german map style.

My questions:
Has anyone already attempted to port internationalization back for the OpenStreetMap style?

If there's no existing modified version I can use straight away I will try to modify the OpenStreetMap style. Can anyone here give some guidelines or advice on the edits that should be necessary?

Thank you for any help smile

Hello Ramu,

you already know the wiki page about … nalization ?

Maybe there are some more starting points for your aim?
