I agree we need a text to TYP converter.

We already have code in mkgmap that was written by Thomas Lußnig three
years ago that can read and write typ files, perhaps the time has come
to put it to use!

I shall write a program that takes the polish-style text input as in
and writes a TYP file using the existing typ code, then see what is
needed beyond that.
