Internationalizing OpenStreetMap in the Summer of Code

Arindam Ghosh project proposal to internationalize OpenStreetMap has been accepted by Google Summer of Code, and I’ll be mentoring. Congrats Arindam, and the other three SoC students.

Internationalizing and localizing is crucial to growth of the project. There’s many facets here, from the website itself, to the tile rendering, and other tools. We’re going to be flexible and see what’s possible this summer. Internationalization is deceptively complicated, especially when you throw Indic renderings into the mix, but I’ve been here before with My Yahoo! And Arindam is very enthusiastic.
