    Yes i also agree to it, would be better for people who couldn't understand English language and I also need a translation option on title and both descriptions from other languages to English as well because for instance yesterday I saw in a good nomination but couldn't understand it's language in its description so I gave it's title and description as 3 star rating and did rated other things accordingly.

    Yes @aceariel2016-PGO I also feel it weird sometimes a translation option might help everywhere I guess.

    Support from niantic would be much appreciated.

  • Thanks for your feedback! As part of our efforts related to Wayspots in India, we are working on adding the following languages to Wayfarer: Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu and Marathi. I don't have a specific timeline for this to launch, but it is in the pipeline. 


    If only there was an "OCR translator" that could translate the text in photos so everyone would enjoy reviews from around the world!

    Thanks niantic for making improvements for our country, I also want other languages to English translation as well that would help in certain situations like I sent above.

    Translations won't help for wayspot reviews since the texts are often short, have local or local language meaning etc. I get tons of review requests (I live in Finland) from Sweden, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, all written in local languages that I have no clue on. This means that I can review in average abt. 1 wayspot per day (many days zero) and then I'm stuck with something I have no clue on.

    It would greatly help the review process if Niantic would limit the reviews to such language postings, that the reviewer has claimed that she can understand.
