Localization

  • The “Save as Draft” feature has been submitted and released, thanks to Safwan, our resident coding superhero :-) Now, when you localize a long article and need to take a break, you can save a “draft” version to finish it later – and it won’t get in the way of other localizers! Documentation about this coming soon.
  • We are deprioritizing Firefox OS content localization for now (more context here). If you have questions about it, let me know.
  • Goals for February can be found on your dashboards – go forth and localize!
  • Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, Polish, and German localizers looking for screenshots for the new Firefox for iOS 2.0 content – look no more! They’re here, courtesy of Joni.
  • Do you speak a fringe language or know someone who does? Take a look at this summerlab session in San Sebastian!

Firefox

  • for iOS
    • We’re almost there for 2.0… are you ready, iOS users?

There you go, I hope you enjoyed this brief summary of what’s going on with SUMO. Let me know in the comments! Don’t forget to talk to your friends and family about mzl.la/support, mzl.la/help, and maybe even mzl.la/sumodev :-) See you around!
