Localisation of the keywords would be the perfect way to go, then we could dispense with a lot of the categories as the language used would make an awful lot more sense. For instance, we in the British Isles don't use Kindergarden or Movie Theatre. And Dave, newsagents is there, it's just called convenience store instead.

Missing is places like playground, playing fields, fishing lake... Far too many to list, adjusting the language used would slim the list considerably and make it infinitely more useful. This would be difficult, very difficult so we need to sort what we have and what they do actually cover, is a sport stadium/arena the same thing as Partake Thistles home ground?

Pip, we haven't had any string changes to localise for this. I assume they're using the old old categories pre-translation (looks like it).

Will big Orit tomorrow about making strings available. Dave is collecting extra names we need which I assume he'll pass to me as Localisation Expert.

I didn't even know there was such a thing.... :oops:

I note we have a category for cemetery, but I don't see crematorium.

It was something Orit mentioned to me in the Pub on Friday. The vast majority of UK editors aren't using the UK English localised editor pages.

Neither did I?! OK they kept those old translations then. Still need to badger for the full list of TTS substitutions and expansions so there's a definitive list of everything I suggested at the start and any continuing ones in reference for the future

One more who's never heard of the GB English version of WME. One thing I do notice is that Places is back to being called Landmarks in the menu.

Do we know if there are any other differences (apart from Category names)?

This is likely due to the fact that Waze have literally copied and kept the translations from wwwaaayyyyy back. Will make contact with Orit tomorrow and assuming she's back in Israel will ask for a fresh string upload so Dave and myself (and others) can go through it and see what works (locally and functionally).
