BTW, I've opened a tracking issue for multilingual turn by turn directions, including available routing engine and TTS languages (as far as I could find - corrections welcome!).

First step should likely be to actually make it possible to set language for the router and for the TTS engine.

That can be later extended by using data from the router to set the correct language for local names (once available).

Actually, just a country code would be enough if no language code is available for the given local name. There is a project called langtable that makes it possible to map languages to country codes (and much more!) with reasonable ammount of certainty.

There would still of course be mistakes but it should IMHO generally handle names without explicit language code quite well.
