Hello, Iis there an easy way to render osm names in a given language? Looked for it in settings but could not find it. Organic maps displays both english and local name in the default renderer

If you're rendering yourself then you need to render the name:XX tag where XX is replaced by the language code for the language you want to see. Not all named objects will have this so you may need to fallback to plain name if the language you want is missing. More info here.

For something you can browse on line vector tile providers are the most likely to give you what you want see e.g. OSM Americana.
