We’re excited to announce the launch of the Localization Special Interest Group in the Mozilla Reps program! The Mozilla Reps program is a fantastic program aimed at representing Mozilla publicly. The program also helps regional Mozilla communities gather together, recruit new mozillians, and attend events where a Mozilla presence is needed.
As stated in the Mozilla Reps wiki, “Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are groups of people within the Mozilla Reps program who have a particular interest (focus) in a specific area of the Mozilla project (eg. Marketing, localization, Support, QA, add-ons etc…).
These groups are created to enable Mozilla Reps to focus on developing specific skills and work more closely with Mozilla staff responsible for those projects. Also they act as key drivers to onboard and help new volunteers to contribute to those projects they are particularly interested in.”
The Localization Special Interest Group (SIG) will aim to train Mozilla Reps on the Mozilla localization program, how and where to find skilled localizers to recruit to the Mozilla project, and connect them with their regional localization team(s). The Localization SIG will help to bridge any existing gaps between regional localization teams and regional Mozilla Reps in an effort to create sustainable relationships, networks, and teams within Mozilla Localization.
If you are interested in joining the Localization SIG, please add your name and Mozilla Reps profile link to the Members section of the main Localization SIG wiki page. We will be organizing a mailing list as well as a training days event in the near future.
