Support » Plugin: OSM - OpenStreetMap » OSM Map Language

  • Excellent plug-in. But a question/feature request):
    I’m shortly going to be wanting to use the plug-in for tag/map for a trip to SE Asia (Thailand, Cambodia, etc.) but I’ve noticed that with OSM all the place names are in the local language (non A-Z alphabet).
    e.g. <; zoom scroll to e.g. Bangkok and only the local non-A-Z name.

    Is there any way to switch language to include the western/roman alphabet name e.g. Bangkok. Unfortunately the local Thai, Cambodian, Lao, Vietnamese names are not recognised by most outside the local countries.

    I appreciate there may be tile constraints from OSM but any way to utilise e.g. wikipedia maps e.g. <;

    (tried e-mailing via your web site but it never gets sent so using this forum instead)

    Hello @psamathe

    we are going to release a new version in November and we will check if your feature request can be covered. We got this idea also from other users.

    Looking forward to see your trip to Asia using WP OSM Plugin 🙂

    Many thanks for your response.
    I wont be updating until after intended travels (if plans go aheads as planned) as I run a customised version of the plug-in. I’ll post details to a new threads as a “Feature Suggestion”.
