Hi, in http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Multilingual_names&diff=1121276&oldid=1116200 you said:

":: If you cannot verify on place the signage, "Street view" from an other online map service can be helpfull."

Unfortunately this isn't good advice; you can't use e.g. Google Street View as it's not licence-compatible. See here:

http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/FAQ#What_images_and_maps_may_I_use_to_make_maps_from.3F

for more details.

Note that this restriction does _not_ apply to Mapillary - according to http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mapillary "There is special permission to derive data from the photos for contributing to OpenStreetMap. The GPX tracks can be used without restriction".
