EU MozCamp 2011/Schedule/Engagement and Regionalization Track/Mozilla and Wikipedia: comparison of localization approaches
Mozilla and Wikipedia: comparison of localization approaches
- Speaker: Amir E. Aharoni
- 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.
