I have a local OpenStreetMap Server (Ubuntu + postgresql + mod_tile + mapnik). How to use only English language in names (or any Specific language) for all areas?

P.S. I understand that names store in tags and maybe for some areas it's not available.

UPDATE Can I change style file for mapnik to render tiles in specific language?


Depending on your setup you will want to edit the queries to Postgres to choose the local name if available. See https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/21784/render-place-name-in-two-languages-with-mapnik for an example.

You will need to make sure that the tags are preserved when doing the import(s).
