Facilitator(s): Matjaž Horvat (mathjazz).

Are you paid or volunteer staff?: Paid.

Area of Contribution (Team Name): L10n.

How are you currently involved with the community?: By driving Persona localization and as a contributor to Mozilla Slovenija (localization, events, blog, FB...) for the last 10 years.

Location of Work (where do you reside?): Lendava, Slovenia.

Talk Length (please choose between 30, 60, 90, 120 minutes): 30.

Summary: Pontoon provides localizers with features never before seen in an open source localization tool: WYSIWYG context, real-time translation editing, and collaborative user review. I'll talk about the progress we made over the last months. I'll tell you when and show you how you can start using it for localizing Mozilla websites and the rest of the Web. I'll tell you when and show you how you can make your website localizable with Pontoon.

How your session furthers the MozCamp Goals (https://wiki.mozilla.org/MozCampEU2012/Tracks): Pontoon lowers barriers to entry the localization process at Mozilla and on the Web in general, so it's a great tool for developing and growing communities. It could grow its own community, because it's to websites what Amara is to videos.

Expected Outcome or Deliverable: Localizers should learn how to localize with Pontoon and developers should be able to integrate Pontoon to their website.

Desired Audience Type or Skill-set: 1. Everybody who likes the Web in their own language, especially localizers. 2. All sorts of developers (Django, PHP, Node.js, Ruby, ASP.NET, Java, HTML, YouNameIt) who want to make their websites localizable with Pontoon.

Equipment Needs (Video projector already included): None.
