- Why does Israel show up only in Hebrew? Can I change it to show only English or Arabic names instead ?
The OSM Israel tries to have whole Israel mapped mainly in two languages: Hebrew and English (Latin characters). Arabic is also existing at several places like Haifa.
So it’s possible to show the country in several languages. Here a small list of examples:
Israel Map in English => http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/en.html?zoom=9&lat=31.87056&lon=34.9942&layers=BT
Israel Map in Arabic => http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/ar.html?zoom=9&lat=31.87056&lon=34.9942&layers=BT
Israel Map in Russian => http://toolserver.org/~osm/locale/ru.html?zoom=9&lat=31.87056&lon=34.9942&layers=BT
