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.

Hi!
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.

Hi Orit, I'd like to ask for pushing Slovak translation into beta WME.
...with the good old crashing :roll: Symbian 2.1.99.114 (N-E52), while
trying to get used to the good new social Android 3.9.xx.yyy (SG-S3 KikiriKat).

Hi Localizers :)

I upload translation for the "Waze Map Editor" approximately every 2 weeks .
All correction and new translation will be re-upload next week.

Please note that the script is not final yet, that's way some strings are still missing.
We are working to complete it as soon as possible.

Thank you for your amazing work!

Orit, IMO it's crucial to upload translation before you release beta into production.

Our polish community worked hard to translate WME, but today we noticed that old translations are in production now: https://world.waze.com/editor/pl/

For instance, polish language name in production translated as "angielski" (which means "english"). I've fixed this on transifex ~10 days ago... :(

WTH? Since when are the translations live on the official editor? Did I miss this announcement? Because orit mentions uploads every two weeks and somehow I'm not even seeing this - both beta and prod shows at least one string that was translated "by davipt, a month ago". As I saw no updates on the beta, I just gave up (focused on other stuff). Now I discover there is a live system already with those old strings? WTH?!

Update: I've double checked many other strings. No update for a whole month for pt_PT. And same version on beta and prod.

Orit, we need *at least* daily updates on the beta editor - and ANY OTHER BETA WEBSITE - to be able to test the strings correctly. Without it it feels like waze mapping some years ago - tweak a segment, wait one month, try, fail, tweak again. It sucks!

I'm not sure when it went live, since I missed an announcement as well. But this morning one polish guy complained that everything we've discussed on a forum still not implemented in production :(

I think it's just someone missed a branch name or smth :lol:
