A big project has been finished, that is reviewing and renaming all mapped and named Kharkiv streets in accordance with Agreement-2009 of Project Ukraine.
In the course of the action I noticed that about a third of streets have not yet been mapped.
I exported whole Kharkiv map into an OSM file, then opened it in Emacs and with use of some macro handling, swapped the street names (they were all in Russian), then manually translated it into Ukrainian (leaving Russian in name:en tag), frequently consulting with http://uk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Вулиці_Харкова along the way. Then I copied Ukrainian name into name:en, put proper typology (Street, Avenue etc), and then wrote a simple Perl script to transcode all names into Latin alphabet.
Took some time to finish everything, as there were over 1,500 items to translate. Looking forward for Mapnik to rerender the tiles.
