There's the small matter of road types, too:

Freeway = Motorway
Walking Trail = Footpath
Railroad = Railway
Runway/Taxiway = Runway

If most of us aren't using it, though, perhaps best we standardize on the default for now to avoid confusion until some kind of country default can be enabled.

It's been there for quite some time.

All of the translations strings are there in Transifex but some don't currently work like 'Place (Point)' and 'Place (Area)'.

I have doubts that 'parking lot landmarks' (as opposed to segments) have any special properties for supressing traffic jams or map problems, despite what we heard from Erez. I'll double-check that...

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).


Can I/us/we be party to the list too?

Hi,

Something that was mentioned as a possibility was to set Uk English as default for the users in the UK rather than just plain English.

I have been using Uk English for months now but for every email of a comment I get the standard link (not Uk English one) and for all those permalinks in the Unlock forum (and elsewhere). :)

I suspect that the emailed links can be changed by changing the default Uk language.

Des. . . ;)

Any chance of making the default be UK English for editors in Ireland too? English as she is spoke here is a lot closer to UK English than American English!
