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

Why does OSM ignore the name fields and display the name:zh fields instead? [https://ibb.co/fVgWVMP Here] is an example.

This may just be because of locale information. I get latin names for some places in France & UK

When I search for "Siyom River" my results are in a English/latin character set. As suggested by @SK53, I think you have a locale or language preference set on your browser or operating system that is causing your displayed result to be in ZH.
