is Masjid has been the standard name for mosque in v1.22? coz i found Mosque Ubudiah...

i think.. all the official place or building should be name by "Nama Khas" such as Masjis Ubudiah, Istana Negara(not National Palace), Istana Budaya(or wanna call National Theatre?), Perpustakaan Negara (instead National Library?) and the list goes on....i think it would be easier for all to match the map and the road signs as road signs in Malaysia is in Malay right?

agree on this.
in fact when i search for "mosque" there are still many not converted yet. i also realise that there are 3 ubudiah mosques in malaysia :)

Actually i got something different. Basically to me this MFM is not only restrict to local people, but also do provide some basis for the foreigners who intended to visit malaysia. So just wondering, if we're using all the names in Malays (which might not be known by foreigners or so... ) will it makes this less user friendly to them?

I do know the fact that most of the users are local people who knows Malay pretty well, but i guess in SG there's not much of Malay in use... (just my doubts, and 2 cents)... Comments are welcome...

It is possible to produce the map in different languages, but for now MFM is in the 'popular' language mode. Whichever the mappers think the name is popularly recognised, she/he will use that one.
