The localization effort for B2G and Gaia will likely start in September (the exact schedule is TBD). With many localizers gathered in Warsaw, MozCamp will be a great opportunity to introduce them to the localization process for B2G.

I will go over the details of the localization process, explaining how to get started and how to set up an environment locally to be ready to localize. I'll demo some of the Gaia apps and explain how to test the localization. All participants will have a chance to install a desktop build of B2G on their machines. I'll also show how to flash B2G on a phone (only a few models are currently supported). I'll present the exact schedule (signoffs, migrations, etc.)

Participants, please read my blog post and watch the screencast at
