[mkgmap-dev] Transliteration

From Lambertus osm at na1400.info on Wed Oct 21 09:27:00 BST 2009

A question popped up on the OSM forum about the many ??? in my maps. 
They are a result of the single code page which is used for the whole 
world and missing automatic transliteration.

I'm starting to understand what's needed for automatic transliteration: 
detection of source language and various methods for transliteration to 
another language (some languages suffice with 1-on-1 character 
replacement, others need lookup tables etc).

The subject has been mentioned on this mailinglist before but doesn't 
seem like it's very active, so: is anyone working on this?

The discussion on the OSM forum starts here (and further down):
