Keywords: translation grave tomb Cc:


Searching Gustave Eiffel with OSM, the word tomb is not translated. But searching cimetière de levallois-perret, the word grave yard is translated.

PS : similar keys translated :

  • osm nominatim.prefix.amenity.grave yard/fr
  • osm nominatim.prefix.railway.historic station/fr

All our translations are crowd-sourced using Translatewiki, so if you find something missing you can fix it yourself by going to

We are not able to accept translations other than via Translatewiki.

Your right, but I can't find the word tomb in Translatewiki.

I understood (but may be i'am wrong) that developper should add a key before other could translate it ?

Could i add a key osm nominatim.prefix.historic.tomb/fr myself ?

Ah right. I assumed as Sarah had only updated that list a few days ago that there wouldn't be anything missing but apparently there was. I've added it now, but it probably won't appear on TW until next weekend.

There are still quite a few terms missing because I've only included key/value combinations with a certain usage level. The full list would probably be two or three times the current size. If that is not a problem, I can extend it further.

On second thought, the correct general solution to the problem would be to fall back to the class (i.e. key) instead of the type (i.e value) when a class/type combination is not found. The set of classes is fixed while the set of class/type combinations is as infinite as the number of typos in the database.
