Mozilla and Wikipedia: comparison of localization approaches

  • Time: 15:15
  • Duration: 45 min.
  • Summary: Mozilla and MediaWiki, the software that runs Wikipedia, are similar in being two prominent Free Software applications that are translated to many languages. However, the path of a translation from the localizer's computer to the end user is quite different in the two projects. I worked on the localization of both applications, as well as of several others, and I am going to compare the localization approaches, tools and workflows that they use.
  • Ideal audience size: The number is not important, but everybody who works on translation and localization should be there ;)
  • Equipment needs (video projector already included): speakers would be nice, but not mandatory.
  • Submit a question for the speaker here:
