#6064 closed defect (needinfo)

Translatioon for tag values is mixed

Reported by: Zverikk Owned by: Zverikk
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Core Version: latest
Keywords: translation, tag values Cc:


There are some tag values that can be translated only in context. For example, "residential" in highway=residential and landuse=residential, "wood" in natural=wood and surface=wood. Those are similar words in English, but different in many other languages (Russian in my case). So, there must be a way to translate them in context (but not breaking current defaults, of course). Like, if there's no translation for "landuse=construction", the plain "construction" key should be looked up.

Do you refer to presets?

No, mostly to relation naming: josm tries to sum them up in one word, usually by using tag value (which is translated). Multipolygons, for example.

see #6064 - better handling of translation of relations

See [o26153], where I added certain types. More are required to make this really useful. Patch welcome.
