Saudi Arabia and Arabic Support

Hello,
I have been using Waze her in Canada and am loving it. I am worried about the time when I have to go back to Saudi Arabia and cannot use Waze any more :( .

Can someone help me with adding support for Saudi Arabia and Arabic language? I know that iPhone and Android are very popular among the youth over there so I am sure the app will be very popular, as most people like free apps and other navigation apps are sold for 100$+ in appStore.

Regards,
Ahmed Bukhamsin

Hey there,

I'm from Bahrain and I travel to Saudi a lot. The maps suck in Bahrain and Saudi :cry:
I'm trying to fix Bahrain's map so hard, but I see no updates to the map so far. I wonder if they ever care to update out maps :evil:

Anyway, I'm willing to help with Arabic support if Waze moderators let me. And it would be awesome to see my updates reflected to the map one day!

I'm actively translating Waze into Arabic now. I have the Waze-Arabic project at 100% completion atm.
I wish admins would create a sub-forum for Arabic. there are 22 Arabic-speaking countries in the world. All those countries can have sub forums under the Arabic forum. This way their scattered efforts can be united.
Waze is not the best here because of the lack of active community. An Arabic forum will raise awareness and wake those sleeping arab-wazers up!

Here in KSA, we can refer to google maps and the http://www.locator.com.sa/Locator/Default_E.aspx to correct the street/road names and building numbers
