OpenStreetMap (homepage) is a free editable map of the whole world. It is made by people like you (released under the Creative Commons Attribution Share Alike 2.0 license).

It is possible to translate the OpenStreetMap website and the Potlatch 2 editor at User Siebrand coordinates the localisation.

Potlatch 2:

Waymarked trails: see Translating:Waymarked Trails.

The JOSM editor startup page can be translated on its website, and the editor itself in Launchpad.

Translators may add "OSM" to their babel box or include {{User OSM}} to add themselves to Category:OpenStreetMap translators.

Reporting issues

Issues for OpenStreetMap and related products can be made in the OpenStreetMap tracker, except for JOSM, which uses its own tracker.

Translation notes

OSM uses rails-i18n, based on CLDR data, to generate plural forms. The plural software keys for each language on rails-i18n, are here. See Unicode CLDR page for an explanation of the plural keys for translators. Advice on writing plural syntax for CLDR data is given here.

OpenStreetMap website

Software help, including a glossary of terms, is available on the OpenStreetMap Wiki.


Changes to messages on are usually exported within 2 weeks. The OSM website is updated every few weeks, as far as we know. More parts of OpenStreetMap may be added later; for now, see the OpenStreetMap Wiki for details.

Map data

Note that the actual map data must be translated using an OpenStreetMap editor, such as iD or JOSM (details and instructions).
