Well if you want to change the current map style then https://github.com/gravitystorm/openstreetmap-carto is the place to go, but that's not what you want, because you want to support both.

So now you have two major problems:

* You need to fork openstreetmap-carto and find a way to do location sensitive selection of what names to use (possibly best done at database import time)
* You need somebody to provide the (significant) infrastructure to render and serve these tiles

Neither of those is a problem with the openstreetmap web site frontend code, which is what is in this repository.

The first involves starting a new project to develop and maintain the technology to do the multilingual rendering.

The second involves finding a sugar daddy to provide the infrastructure, or petitioning OSMF to provide the funds for the existing operations team to purchase the necessary extra hardware.
