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

I've been trying to use some of the data OSM provides, like a list of all the countries in the world or all cities within a country. I am getting the correct results but I am getting those results in every language, I only want/need the data in English. How can I get those results?

Where did you get this data from exactly?

I guess a link to an example query would be helpful. You can create one via the "share" link at the turbo website.

If you don't need geometries, you can use the csv output format to select a subset of tags:


Other than that, Overpass doesn't have any features for altering the results, it returns all the tags for the objects matching the query.
