Yes it will be transliterated from current OSM data.

Ehsan,

There seem to be a number of issues that people have pointed out with this dataset already and your responses have not addressed them. Before we can even discuss any of the merits of the data, we need to address some very basic issues- such as:

1. Is this data autogenerated from another sources? Ie is this just a translation/transliteration? If so, then as Frederik points out, it's of limited value to the project.

2. If it's not that, we need to know the source of the data and the terms of the distribution and use of that data in an authoritative (written) form.

- Serge

If they can be generated programmatically, then that could/should be done by the map drawing software; we don't want automatically generated stuff in the database.
