Hello Xuacu,

I am copying the address@hidden list, which is the place where we
discuss all the development around MapOSMatic. Please keep this list in
the Cc: field. Thanks!

Excellent! I have integrated your ocitysmap translation, and you can
now render Asturian maps on See an example
at It is not yet visible on, but it will be there next time we deploy MapOSMatic
in production (which happens roughly once a week these days).

A few comments/questions:

 * I didn't no how to say "Spain" in Asturian, so for the moment in the
   map language selector, you will see "España (AST)". If you tell me
   how to say "Spain" in Asturian, I will fix this.

 * To translate OcitySMap, two things are needed: the translation of
   the .po file as you did, but also sometimes a bit of Python code
   that is responsible for doing street names transformation. If you
   look at the index of the map, you will see that most streets are
   under the letter "C", because they are all "Calle Foobar", "Calle
   Barfoo", etc. By adding a bit of language-specific Python code, we
   can transform this into "Foobar (Calle)" and "Barfoo (Calle)" which
   makes the street index more useful. You can see how it is done for
   Spanish at
   If you don't know how to write Python code, just tell us the list of
   appelations and determinants, and we'll implement it.

Done. You can fetch the .po file to translate at

Thanks again a lot for your contribution!
