And so it begins

Welcome to the new Mozilla L10n blog! If you are applauding while reading this, it’s to be expected! After all, we’re all applauding while writing it :-)

We’re extremely happy to launch our blog, providing the Mozilla L10n community members with another platform to learn about L10n, Mozilla projects, and a host of other exciting topics.

At MozCamp EU we discussed the purpose for having this blog. I want to take this chance to quickly review why we’ve decided to create it, what we hope to accomplish, and what you can expect from it.

Blog Mission (the why):

  • Provide info on L10n topics that do not fit with wiki doc models.
  • Highlight new communities, document community experiences with specific tools, projects, etc.
  • Increase visibility of Mozilla L10n efforts.

What you can expect:

  • 200 words or less on L10n community suggested topics; one entry per week (with the exception of this week).
  • Target format for entries: quick reference and scannable.

We’re still hoping to work out some kinks (e.g., create a unique theme design, ensure that a proper schedule is maintained, etc.) but we hope to have these worked out by the beginning of next year.

It’s a great time to be a part of the L10n efforts. With creation of the new rapid release cycle, we’re pushing the boundaries of innovation and finding creative solutions to make L10n work seamlessly with the project development. There are thrilling changes coming to L10n tools, processes, engagement, and Mozilla products. So if you’re currently considering joining our communities, there’s never been a better time than now!

Stay tuned, we’ve got some great stuff in store!
