If you want to register as an official Mozilla L10n team, follow these steps:


What you need to get started:

  1. Check the l10n teams category to see if there's already a team registered to localize your intended product.
  2. Find the code you need to use following the guidelines at L10n:Locale_Codes. You may need only a language code; alternatively, you may need language country dialect codes. Please use the shortest codes possible.
  3. Have a valid email address ready.

What to do

These are the steps you need to take:

  1. Subscribe to the mailing list mozilla-dev-l10n@mozilla.org, or to its newsgroup mirror mozilla.dev.l10n (you can also follow the newsgroup via Google Groups). Note that posts made to the newsgroup are copied to the mailing list, and vice versa. Any important announcements will be posted here.
  2. File a bug in Bugzilla - product "Mozilla Localizations", component "Registration & Management". State in the bug report:
    • the product you want to localize
    • the language country code
    • your contact details (name email, web-page if available).


Why should I register?
Registered teams have their work hosted at mozilla.org. Registration also helps to publicise your efforts to the widest possible audience, and prevents the duplication of effort. Official Firefox localizations have their own Mercurial repositories and builds for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X are generated automatically.
Why must I file a bug to register my team?
Using bugzilla to track these requests means everyone can see how far along the process is, and whether any further information is required from the new team.
