I am new to OSM, so please be patient with me. I have spent hours searching youtube and google and haven’t found the answer I am looking for.
I live in Swaziland (Southern Africa), and have noticed that the regions are not correctly named. If you look at the region names, they are listed with such names as “sifundza seManzini.” It appears that someone incorrectly copied text without understanding the siSwati language as this translates to “We are learning about Manzini.” The region is known as Manzini. (This problem occurs across all the regions: Manzini, Hhohho, Lubombo, Shiselweni). I have been trying to figure out how to rename these administrative areas, but can’t for the life of me figure it out. I have looked at the ID editor in OSM as well as tried my hand at JOSM, but can’t figure it out.
I also now realize that this can easily be done with the iD in-browser editor.
1.) Zoom into an area that includes the administrative boundary
2.) Click the boundary line
3.) Under “Relations” find the tag associated with the region you want to rename and click on it
4.) Update the name
