Name display on downloaded maps

When I view China on the OpenStreetMap website like here names appear in Chinese.

When I downloaded the Garmin Generic Routable map for China with Mapnik TYP file from here the resultant map displays the Anglicized names in Roman letters.

Is there any way I can download the maps so that names appear in Chinese characters?


No, that is not supported, maybe try another map provider:

As an adition to Ligfietser’s comment:
The maps on are targetted at an international audience and so I chose to use a Latin characterset and use international or transliterated names as much as possible.

For localized maps (e.g. maps in the many local languages found around the world) users should look for a local map provider. The link Ligfietser provides listst many of these local map providers.
