Change to standard alphabet from cyrillic

Hello!


I downloaded the map of Bulgaria, however all the names on the map are written in cyrillic. Is there a way to change to the standard latin alphabet? I am also using osmand+ and it has the option to display latin / cyrillic, but I cannot find this option in Locus. The map is alsmost unusable with cyrillic letters...


Thank you!

Hello Ciprian,


thank you for question. Unfortunately this is not possible. Bulgaria LoMap is available only in local language. However we'll prepare (based on your topic) English version of Bulgaria map. This map could be available in next 14 days.

Thank you for understanding

Best regards

Petr

This can be applied to all Cyrillic using countries (especially Balkans area)

Hi Petr,


I just downloaded Greece map and found that all labels are in cyrillic. There is not option to download Greece map with latin labels in Locus Store.


Is there any map setting to get latin labels for Greece map?


Thanks,

Pavel

Hi Pavel,


please open Menu > Settings > Maps > Offline > Language and select English.

Please note that from the next version will be possible to change language via Menu > Maps > Offline > option for particular map.


Thank you

Hi,

the name in English is displayed only when the translation is available. If the name isn't translated than the local language name is used.

Thank you for understanding

Hmm. Ok, understood.


But the issue is that latin alphabet users cannot event read cyrilic. Which make the maps really unusable. I know Cyrillic has an 1 to 1 correspondence to latin, so instead of using the translation provided by osm, or where you get the map from, Locus could simply switch the cyrilic to latin. No translation, but makes the map readable.

osmand application displays only latin, their map is osm, maybe you can take a look
