I agree with Jorge. OSM is a multicultural organization and a multitude of languages are spoken. 

That type of work would not be efficient if done in a centralized way. It should belong to local communities when possible.

Would it be better to first provide tools for local communities to welcome new members, identify local contributors, and monitor mapping in their area?
