L10N Procedure


Previous Action Items

  • laura: decide what to do with no longer supported locales

Answer: in these edge cases lets revert to suggested locales in Pascal's document here:

  • ckoehler: clarify is ssl is needed
  • ckoehler, jakem and wenzel: figure out server requirements
  • ckoehler: create full list of locales we need to support

Action Items

  • LF/FW - deliver txt file with all strings, everything on page including button text
  • JP - support and test right to left
  • JP - make sure we can add specific CSS tweaks for specific languages (for example if in german a word is too long for a button)
  • SD - allocate another resource for QA

Notes For Ckoehler

Schedule Review

  • No issues under design & implmentation Date

  • QA - Raymond out during 11-18 SD finding new person to handle
  • Legal - not present to review date
  • Launch dates seem ok with present team members

Implementation update

  • Overlay added according to design
  • Jquery might be to big a dl for this page, might launch with this, replace later
  • FW - doing code review, everything looking ok and should be done tomorrow
  • FW working on script to extract strings for should be done tomorrow
  • Pascal -> need to test and support right to left language support
  • Pascal -> need to support certain css rules for long text, for example search in german


  • The search form has a bunch of hidden elements, among them:

<input name="rls" value="org.mozilla:en-US:official" type="hidden"> <input name="hl" value="en" type="hidden">

    • What do we need to fill in there? (Note hl "en" seems to vary from our build locale "en-US")
