[HOT] Mali and Syria

Hi Rafael and Pierre B,

I created Feature Requests for both translation of Job Information and
the Tasking Manager interface in github.

https://github.com/hotosm/osm-tasking-manager/issues/118
https://github.com/hotosm/osm-tasking-manager/issues/117

I think there are plenty of people that would help translate. The
issue is more having more people help contribute code. As you can see
from the issues list in Github there are many different types of
requests: https://github.com/hotosm/osm-tasking-manager

Best,

-Kate
