The Static.API lets you make localized map images with labels in different languages. To set the language for geo object names on a map, you need to pass the locale in the HTTP request.
The locale is set in RFC-3066 format using the lang parameter:
- language - Two-letter language code. Specified in ISO 639-1 format. Sets the language for objects on the map (toponyms and controls).
- region - Two-letter country code. Specified in ISO 3166-1 format. Determines regional settings such as measurement units (for indicating distances between objects or driving speeds on a route).Note. For the regions
TR, distance is shown in kilometers; for
US, it is shown in miles.
The following locales are currently supported:
lang=en-US(distance in miles)
Note. In early versions of the API, the locale was specified after a dash. For example,
en-US. This notation is supported for backward compatibility, but is not recommended.
Note. Turkish on geo object labels is currently supported only for maps of Turkey.
