Pardon the lengthy topic but it details exactly what I am looking for.
I created the Mapping Botswana project and in order to get a fairly

I've tried several methods of translating OSM and non-OSM stuff for the

Their app lets me translate shorter sentences while idling a few
minutues somewhere while I reserve the
For a few months I've made static maps by looking at changesets and

This can occur when a primary and a service road are joined. iD does not
know which one it is and so it concatenates them. iD displays the road
then as "Highway" with this combined type as key=value.
I imagine this could be fairly hard to combat, GUI wise you would need
special handling for
Because it is used not just by beginners? I use iD for fly-by edits or
exploratory wanderings. JOSM for the big bulk stuff (adding every single
house in a big area)
