L10n dashboard now available to Calendar localizers as well

Thanks to gozer, Mozilla Messaging’s build guru, we now have a working l10n dashboard for the calendar localizations. Localizers, who also do l10n work for Firefox or Thunderbird should already be familiar with the dashboard, for the others here’s a quick explanation of the dashboard table:

  • Locale: The locale code for each calendar locale
  • Tree: The tree ID, the Mozilla Messaging dashboard currently knows two trees:
    • tb3x: Information on the localization status of the Thunderbird localization of a given locale
    • cal3x: Information on the localization status of the Sunbird/Lightning localization of a given locale
  • %: Percentage of completion of a locale (Please note, that this will probably never reach 100%, because there are some strings in each localization which shouldn’t be translated)
  • Errors: Number of localization errors
  • Missing: Number of missing strings
  • Unchanged: Number of unchanged strings excl. access- and commandkeys (this relates to the % number mentioned above)
  • Stats: Graphical history of locale status (H) and compare-locales output (C)
  • Status: Graphical indicator for the current state of the localization

I hope this helps our localizers in working even more effectively than they have already done in the past (if that’s even possible). Thanks again, gozer!

  2. This dashboard seems to be a really useful tool I definitely want to learn more about. So thanks for that hint.
