Some dictionnary like this one on the wiki :
This is a renderer issue. It is also the software to decide whether it
has enough space to print the full name or require some abbreviations
depending on the zoom level.
About your question:

I would say no because you tag for the renderer in this case. The tag
'name' is the local name. Then use another tag for the
romanized/English name (name:en ?). Then if you want to see both on a
map, you have to do it in the renderer itself.
