Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?


Are there some translation attempts going on here? I am asking because a few days ago some isolated words started to appear in my browser's language (namely 'users' under search field, 'yesterday' in posts' time, 'title' in Markdown Basics help box)

It hurts the eyes to see one word in a different language than the rest, but so be it. But now the 'about' and 'faq' fields started to appear in chinese, maybe japanese (このサイトについて よくある質問).

I always supported asking questions in different languages, but it has its limits... :)

I had the same problem, but now it is gone.

@scai: it's sporadic. I bet it will happen to you again at some point (until we hypothetically fix it)

Actually I start to like it. You see some nice new letters when you come back... 关于本站 常见问题 :)

I'm seeing this too, now.

Yes, this isn't supposed to be happening. I'm looking into it.

p.s. what language(s) do you have your browser set to? I'm observing it with en-gb, en-us, en.
