Thanks for link. You are right, transliteration in DB is useless while such an automated transliteration system exists...

Hi,

The OpenStreetMap German Style auto converts names to latin/english letters. Compare these 2 views@ http://openstreetmap.de/karte.html?zoom=16&lat=35.6827&lon=51.40404&layers=B000TT
and http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/35.6812/51.3994

The software is described here
