What’s up with SUMO – 11th February

Hello, SUMO Nation!

How have you been? Apparently it’s the season to be a bit sick here and there… Hopefully you’re all fine and happy! We wish you a moderately easy-going weekend and dive straight into the most recent updates from the world of SUMO. Let’s go!

Welcome, new contributors!

If you just joined us, don’t hesitate – come over and say “hi” in the forums!

Contributors of the week

  • Safwan – for his continuous coding awesomeness and working on making our localizers’ lives easier with his magnificent additions to Kitsune – tōmākē anēka dhan’yabāda!

We salute you!

Don’t forget that if you are new to SUMO and someone helped you get started in a nice way you can nominate them for the Buddy of the Month!

Most recent SUMO Community meeting

The next SUMO Community meeting…

  • …is happening on Monday the 15th of February – join us!
  • Reminder: if you want to add a discussion topic to the upcoming meeting agenda:
    • Start a thread in the Community Forums, so that everyone in the community can see what will be discussed and voice their opinion here before Monday (this will make it easier to have an efficient meeting).
    • Please do so as soon as you can before the meeting, so that people have time to read, think, and reply (and also add it to the agenda).
    • If you can, please attend the meeting in person (or via IRC), so we can follow up on your discussion topic during the meeting with your feedback.




Support Forum

  • No updates from the forums… But soon… ;-)

Knowledge Base


  • 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!


  • 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!
