That was most probably me... It is the only word for "drives"; however maybe "recorridos" does sound better. I would be against the use of "Rutas" since we are already using it for the routes given to users, and may cause some confusion if used here.

I just joined Polish translators' team, but whatever resource I choose, the Translate Now button (as well as Download for translation) is disabled.

Why is so?

It means that the request to join has not yet been approved by one of the language coordinators.

That's right. However on the language history I cannot se any "berestovskyy added by..." do you? If not, contact Orit to make sure your request to join is approved.

I just notice a little problem in the french translation of WME.

In the landmark edition, the english type leisure should be translate to "Loisirs" not "Loisir".

Bye.

Could you please report it on your country forum? It's more probable that whomever manages the translation monitors that one.

From a few weeks ago, I remember just a couple (maybe five or so?) of languages were planned to be initially supported for WME.
I could have possibly missed the moment, when it changed...

Hi Orit, I'd like to ask for pushing Slovak translation into beta WME.

We are missing the strings for 'yesterday' and 'today' which appears as drive time info in the list of 'Drives' and also time info for edited objects displayed in 'Updated:' and 'Created:'.

Even though all strings are translated, including the "Loading %{layer_name}..." (layers.loading) and "road data" (layers.vector.roads) strings, I still see the full English version of "Loading road data..." message appearing in the layer loading sequence for a few translations I checked, especially if you pan around at closer zoom levels, like zoom level 5.

Another thing potentially missing is the translation of the month names for the edited and created times. If this is handled by OS localization settings, it could potentially clash for some users, especially if they need to have specific OS settings, or are unable to change these due to policy restrictions.
This likely applies to the 'today' and 'yesterday' strings too.
