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

Good day.

Is it possible to compare amount of string in two languages for one country to see which language is more informative (more objects are named using this language)?

More specific: Ukraine, Ukrainian vs Russian language.

You can download the Ukraine extract from the Geofabrik download server and then use any extract tool of your choice to count how many name:en and name:ru tags there are. (You can even download the .osm.bz2 file and then use bzgrep.) However, where people have (only) put a name in the name tag simply, it will be more difficult to analyse which language that is in.

Thanks. I am trying to use osm filter: osmfilter ukraine-latest.o5m --out-key=name: But after short time there is a message: "osmfilter Error: write error." The same error with "osmfilter ukraine-latest.o5m --out-count=name:". What could it be?
