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

I want to find elements (preferably with specific tags such as cities, villages, roads, monuments) in Greece that they do have a name tag and a name:en tag but not a name:el tag?

(Q2: Is there an easy way to copy the name tag to name:el tag massively?)

For starters I'll recommend running the query https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/yWy , which will find all nodes in Greece with a name:en tag, but no name tag.

(this query currently comes up with 2132 nodes, of which 75 has name:el set)

There are fairly efficient ways to do the job, but you'll probably have to employ JOSM for that.

Thank you for your answer but the link is dead. Can you provide the code?

I've moved the trailing comma, so the link should work now.

In the wizard enter "type:node & name= & "name:en"= in Ελλάδα", then in the generated code insert a "!" right before "name"
