Translating Mapeo & default configurations

Mapeo aims to be accessible to a wide range of communities in their native languages, and to facilitate the process of translating the app and the default configuration into new languages as needed.

While developing custom configurations currently requires significant technical knowledge, the process of translating Mapeo and the default configuration into a new local language can be an easier way to customize the tool for use in your project.
