Waymarked Trails now in 7 more languages, and more to come

Posted by Guttorm Flatabø on 3 May 2012 in English (English). Last updated on 10 May 2012.

While hiking relations are being related (almost) all over the world, Waymarked Trails is adapting by partnering with Translatewiki to translate the user interface.

You can now translate Waymarked Trails like many others have, resulting in 7 new languages even before being officially added to Translatewiki.

Languages that have been started but have yet to complete include Russian, Portuguese, Hungarian and Japanese. Other interesting contenders include Zazaki, Interlingua, Luxembourgish and Telugu.

If you know of Waymarked Trails that are mapped, but have yet to be included in Waymarked Trails you can have them included by making relations according to the specifications in the wiki (see also the help pages).

Happy internationalized mapping!

That’s a very good map and representation of routes. So please tell, how would I get a trail to appear on the Waymarked Trails-Hiking map? Regards

Looks like you found out. And that you also found out that you can’t put several route types on the same relation?

Do you think Waymarked Trails (WMT) should handle that? If so it also have to handle tags like hiking:description=* and so on, and I don’t think that is in common use. Is it often that many types share the exact same route?

Thanks for your reply, yes I found the email contact for the site and got a very fast reply from Sarah. I’ve implemented her suggestions and will see later on if it turns out well. Being very favorably impressed with the hiking map I was prompted to look at other routes in my area and have started trying get them properly displayed. Regards.
