    Above is your demo page which displays name in different languages. For example if zoom out and move it to other country, the names are all in local language.
    Is there any way I can display all the names in English instead of local language? Thanks.

    Hi Congyuan,

    The names are actually embedded in the tile images, which are coming from the tile server. The OpenStreetMap tile server uses local country names, so I would recommend checking their documentation for any means to use English tile labels. Alternatively, you could use Bing instead.
