[Fwd: Firefox translations status in Natty]


Hallo Team!

Ab Alpha 2 sollten wir unsere Tests intensivieren, da (wie in der
weitergeleiteten Nachricht zu lesen) dann ein Überblick über den
aktuellen Stand der Übersetzungen möglich ist.

Hi translators,

I thought I'd give you a quick update on the Firefox translations in

Due to a change in the way upstream packages translations, those of you
who are testing Natty will have noticed that Firefox is in English only.

During the Canonical Platform Rally last week we worked on fixing this
to import translations into Launchpad and put them in the language
packs. Special thanks go to Danilo on his great work on modifying po2xpi
for the new format [1], Chris Coulson for getting the Firefox en-US
template to build automatically and Martin Pitt to integrate the po2xpi
changes into langpack-o-matic [2], which will allow to build the Firefox
translations and put them into the language packs.

If all goes well, most of the translations should be available after
Alpha-2 on February the 3rd.

      * Once they are available, please make sure to test them well and
        report any bugs you might find.

In addition to that, while importing some upstream translations we
noticed a couple of bugs. These need to be fixed upstream, so I'd like
to ask the teams affected to coordinate with upstream to fix them.

Here are the bugs in Launchpad with upstream links:

Brazilian Portuguese:

Norwegian Nynorsk:




      * Please work with the upstream teams to get these fixed. In the
        meantime, you can fix them in the xpi files for Ubuntu [3] and
        upload them.

Finally, just a note to say that we imported the translations from [4].
I know some teams haven't got their translations in there yet, only on
Mercurial. We've only imported the official ones for now. If you need
your non-official translation to get imported, let us know and we'll see
if we can figure something out.
