  • Telefonica is investigating putting internal resources on translating B2G/HTML5 pages in Spanish and Portuguese. It may be an intern working on that, I suggested that he should focus on helping build a community of localizers instead of just translating

SUMO

Identity

  • Last two releases of Persona brought many new & fuzzy strings (~ 50%). There are three reasons for this:
    • renaming BrowserID to Persona
    • a general string proofreading by copywriters
    • adding main website (https://persona.org) to the list of items we localize
  • Anyway: 4 days atfer we prepared strings for the last release, 1/3 of the teams are at 100% (yay!)
