Map localization

You can use the Static API to create localized map images with captions in different languages. To set the language for 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: lang=language_region

  • 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).

The example below shows the map of Turkey with captions in Turkish:,39.947718&lang=tr_TR&apikey=YOUR_API_KEY
