+**Why are there so many duplicate "Type" translations?** There are multiple
+distinct preset fields with the label "Type". You can see some context on the
+"Details" tab in Transifex:
+The "key" field indicates that this is the "Type" label for the
+"[aeroway](" preset, i.e. you should
+translate it as you would translate "type" in "type of aeroway".
+These are separate translations for uniformity reasons and because some languages
+ may translate "type" differently in "type of aeroway" and "type of amenity", for
+ example.
## Adding New Strings for Translation
iD translates strings with a `t` function - `t('')` translate the key
