Summary: Workshop on how to localize the MDN: Why doing it – Getting started on the MDN – Join/Create a team — How to get help.

How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals (

  • This is a Grow Mozilla event.
  • But we are in great need of new l10n teams for our Apps documentation, our B2G/Firefox OS documentation and our Open Web documentation (that teaches Web devs how to write good interoperable desktop and mobile Web sites). It has a direct influence on all three tracks.

Expected Outcome or Deliverable:

  • All attendees will
    1. be able to translate more pages in the MDN
    2. be able to coordinate with other contributors
    3. be prepared to grow a team of localizers by hosting events and assisting on-line new contributors.
  • Attendees of a not-yet-existing locale will
    1. go out of the workshop with their new locale set up, ready for translation.
    2. know the different steps needed until the locale will go live.
  • We expect a directly gain of a few new core contributors for a few locales (like Spanish, Polish, Italian, ...) that had an active team a few years ago but have become dormant.

Desired Audience Type or Skill-set: anybody with decent writing skills in their language Newbie/Wannabe localizers, translators, and people w/o experience with the MDN are all welcome.

Equipment Needs (Video projector already included): (good, reliable) wi-fi
