Web Projects

L10n kit


We use the Mercurial version control system (Hg) to manage our source code and localizations. Localizers in training can get a updated zipfile with the localization files or pull the files from Mercurial

All localizers working on software projects use a texteditor. The localization process is managed individually by each module owner on his own schedule. When possible web content is managed on Verbatim, in order to let more people cooperate.

Translation Memory

We currently use Transvision. This tool is useful in several situations, for example to check if wrong strings belong to the software or an add-on, identify in which file a particular string is saved or check how an English string is localized (this is extremely important for SUMO articles).


Our team doesn't have an official glossary. The most common terms are available in our Style guide, if a term is missing we rely on Transvision's search.

Style Guide

A brief Style guide is available on our website.
