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

The web tool at https://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=... shows a great variety of alternate / non-english place names, eg for cities; how would I find those thru the nominatim API ? I cannot seem to find documentation on how to find tags by ID.

I tried


but don't see the alternate names info I am after in the response.

You can add namedetails=1 to your search query to get the full list of available names, e.g. https://nominatim.openstreetmap.org/lookup?osm_ids=R1382494&format=json&namedetails=1.

For a full description of the lookup API, see the documentation on nominatim.org.
