I am currently writing a free listings guide to Astana and would like to incorporate the excellent map you have of the city. I will course follow the attribution rules you set out.
I just had a question regarding the information in the map: I've noticed that the street names are all in Russian. Would it be permissible to overlay alongside them, the names in English?

Hi Alan J Thompson, you’re allowed or welcome to add the English names to the map according these rules https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:name But how is it possible to have an English name in Astana ? Just translating the names won’t do. Another problem is that name signs of the streets will be Kazakhs’ as such in Cyrillic script ? What do you make of м-н. Самал ? Search for a native speaker living in your region who’s willing to help you to translate the main streets which are mentioned in your guide into English and leave the otherones.
