Getting Started

  • The team has decided to use Pootle as the main tool for applying/suggesting translations and all Strings should be translated with this tool and please don't use repositories directly for localizing as using both may cause conflicts.
  • Please do pay attention to terminology and words suggested on translation entries on Pootle as they're considered accepted on team. If you have suggestions, we will be more than happy to discuss with you on our Mailing List or IRC channel on just leave a comment on Pootle.
  • If you can't find the project you interested in working on Pootle, please contact us on our Mailing List, IRC channel or send a message on Twitter and we will be happy to help you with that.
Projects & Priorities (overall status)
  • Firefox (Current Status): Working on Firefox Aurora.
    • Devtools is better left untranslated while it's technical section and translating them will make confusion for users.
  • Webparts: Is the second most important priority for team. Web parts are the webpages for Mozilla and Firefox.
  • Firefox for Android (Firefox Mobile): Project is under active translation. Testing (for showing all characters correctly on all mobile phones) and trying to release. We should closely cooperate with Mozilla to make the RTL version of Android released due to issues with RTL.
  • Firefox OS: Requested team to be added on team's Pootle page. Translations will be start soon.
