A while ago I asked whether there are any mappings from tags to human
friendly labels such as [highway=traffic_signal -> Ampel] or
[tourism=chalet -> Almhütte].
Obviously, this information is useful for displaying entities in a human
We were pointed to the translate wiki, and in fact, the values for
keys starting with "geocoder.search_osm_nominatim.prefix." are very
useful for that purpose.
My questions are, whether there is also a way of contributing new
translations, as it seems special rights are required for this.
And if so, would it be even possible to add - or at least propose - new
tags? For instance, on translate wiki, there is an entry for
[tourism=chalet], but there is no entry for [highway=traffic_signal]
(which could be translated to e.g. Ampel in german)
