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

Timor Leste shows up as Timor Lest on our map. Not sure how to make this change. Is someone able to make the change or help inform me how to do so? Thank you in advance.

Can you tell us more about what you mean by "our map"? Is it a custom map, one provided by someone else, inside an app, or something else?

I checked the data in OSM, and "Timor Lest" isn't used as the name in any of the languages that have been tagged, so that name must be coming from somewhere else.

its on Mapbox. I noticed it was correct on other sources as well. I may have someone from our tech team inquire as I don't understand much about these things
