Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I explain myself.

As I'm travelling with iPhone/openmaps, I try to put pin of somes places listed on wikitravel. Now, I am trying Alexandria http://wikitravel.org/en/Alexandria

Place like Alexandria National Museum, Kom el-Shouqafa, Citadel of Qaitbay are not found in openstreetmap (either web or openmaps) I know arabic languages have multiple transcription but it's really annoying to be unable to enter in advance pin/poi.

Any quick way to do this ?

Thanks a lot.

It's really hard to look at map rendered in Arabic Abja, good luck with the search.

  • Alexandria National Musuem is located at Tariq Al-Horreya Street (former Rue Fouad) according to wikipedia, but those names are not available in OSM.
  • The citadel is in OSM
