Hi Miguel,  welcome to Wales or should I say Croisi y Cymru. 

I am based in the Marches on the border so my mapping is regularly both sides of the border. I do keep an eye on mid Wales through whodidit as we are very sparse on mappers in that area.

I would disagree with that, I prefer to map the top name in name and then use name:cy and name:en tags. In my experience that is the norm. Experience tells me that is far easier if the name contains a single language. In Ceredigion I would expect that to be usually Cymraig.

I am not sure what telegram is, the UK community hang out on IRC in #talk-gb, you are welcome to join us.

Have fun,  and certainly visit New Quay (Under Milk Wood), while you are in Ceredigion.
