I believe the north part is observing Turkey administration rules, for the primary names. Locals they need not the greek names, but for south visitors would be much needed. It could also bring more transparency between the sides.

Editors of Republic of Cyprus map shall use the official latin transliteration, avoiding reinventing the wheel. It is found on road signs and street name plates. If in future it will become a priority, the Greek transliteration can be added as Alt name, but until then there is too little demand for it.

The Department of Postal Services of the Republic of Cyprus had published a list of postal codes along with street names, municipalities/communities and districts. September 2018 version combines English and Greek names: Rep. of Cyprus Post Code Directory 2018.xlsx (English). In May 2018, the English version was here: 2017.09.30_Post Code Directory.xlsx (and Greek-only: 2017.09.30_Οδηγός Ταχυδρομικού Κώδικα.xlsx).
Source: the new website of Ministry of Transport, Communications and Works / Department of Postal Services - aka Cyprus Post.

In regardings to a previous concern and according to the official postcodes file, in case of:
Municipality/Community: Livadia Ammochostou
District: Ammochostos
in Waze map the city name should be Livadia Ammochostou, without parenthesis or other punctuation.

Is there any rule which language should be main and which shoul be in alt name? It is not possible to add alternative name to streets without the street name unfortunately.

I know that there are different rules between Cyprus Rep. and Northern Cyprus. I do a lot of edits at northern part of island but I can help in the part of rest of the Cyprus.

Hello,
if i understand we name new segments with only with their greek/latin city name so; we rename actual segments which have "english" name to this format.
If we name rename Nicosia by "Lefkosia (Nicosia)" and not only "Lefkosia" isn't better? It'll help local wazer, tourist wazer and us editors which are or aren't from Cyprus.

What do you think about this, could we suggest this naming to GC/LC?

I found another problem, there is a village name (Livadia) which is existent in 3 different districts:

Livadia Ammochostou
Livadia Larnakas
Livadia Lefkosias

How shall this be treated? Nobody in CY speaks from i.e Livadia Larnakas, it's only Livadia.

Also the municipality does nothing mention about (http://www.livadia.org.cy/?lang=en).

Please advise

Hi.
I want to help with map in Cyprus.
Please let us know which city name is correct.
I found for example:
[*]Limassol and Lemesos
[*]Nicosia and Lefkosia
[*]Pafos and Paphos
We should have some standard for that.
Other problem is street name (some in greek and most in english). Same with POI.

In north part they use Turkish language. Livnig there turkich people so when they use Waze they use their (turkish) name of city and street. Here one example of UR https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lo ... t=10688046

IMO we can add that village name as Livadia Ammochostou or Livadia (Ammochostou).
Till we can't add district to address than it is only way to solve that problem.
