Hello OSM folks
For the integration of osm into the wikipedia there will be localized
maps in all languages that have their own wikipedia. The problem is,
that a lot of countries are not translated yet.
To get an overview over the status and make translating those countries
more easy, I created a tool that can be found at
I'd like to encourage everyone to spend some time making translated maps
better. Comments welcome!
That's very useful, and it's nice to see the toolserver being put to good use.
One thing that would be very useful is if you would offer a .osm file
for download which would include all the place=country nodes so that
one could mass-translate them in e.g. JOSM. You can do this making an
OSM file whose contents are a concatenation of the various
where ID is the node ID.
I also thought about implementing inline-editing by just clicking the
wrongly translated name and do the commit to the api right from the
Toolserver. This way also the MySQL-DB behind the lists would be up2date
Don't you fear corrupt mass-imports as we got just some weeks ago? (see
