In order to weed out confusion , I have revised the entire string. Following strings must be considered as corrected localised version.

Thank you Chandan! Being new to this language - should the word "Firefox OS" be in English? I just know that in other languages we usually use branded words in English but let me know if it's different for hi-IN.

Firefox OS should not be translated or transliterated, so please keep it in English.
Thanks @chandan, do it "फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस" isntead of "फायरफौक्स ओ.एस.".

@Francesco Yes its true. As discussed with Rajesh Ji for Hindi we generally translate product name too.

So can we move ahead with this one ?

@Meghraj Can you pease add as a comment the final localized string?

In case of Firefox OS you technically can't translate the brand: file containing the official branding is not localizable. The result would be a mix of translated and untranslated brand names.
@Francesco, yes but we always "फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस" isntead of "फायरफौक्स ओ.एस." in all SUMO articles as well as in other strings.
I mean instead of Firefox OS ("फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस").
Thanks Umesh..!!

So finally i have reviewed whole string which has been translated by Chandan, and also corrected, so @Francesco you now may close the bug before that Umesh if have a look on new localized content.

फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस अब भारत में भी उपलब्ध है। बने, सबसे पहले फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस स्मार्टफोन खरीदने वालें लोगों में से एक! <a>यहाँ देखें कि कैसे प्राप्त कर सकते हैं।</a>

किसी के लिए एक अच्छे उपहार की तलाश में हैं? <a> फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस फ़ोन के बारे में क्या ख्याल है? </a>

कॉफ़ी के दीवाने? रेस्टोरेंट के खाने के शौक़ीन? आपको <a> फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस </a> के साथ ऐसे कई एप्प्स मिलेंगे जो आपके जीवन शैली के लिए उपयुक्त होंगे।

फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस पर अद्-भुत  एप्प्स और खेल पूर्वस्थापित हैं। अपना <a>फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस आज </a> ही लें।

Thanks!!

@Francesco If its related to technical issue then I am fine with keeping product name as it is in English.

@Francesco, @Meghraj Lets wait for input from Rajesh Ji. Then we can move ahead.

I asked both Jeff's and Pei's opinion about this, since there were discussions about localizing brands. My understanding is that Firefox OS should never be translated, but I want to be sure about this.

Basically: Firefox OS inside the phone is not localizable, so whenever the interface says "Firefox OS", it will be displayed as "Firefox OS". In my opinion, localizing pages and calling it फ़ायरफ़ॉक्स ओएस would be confusing for users

There's time before deadline, so we can discuss this further after the week-end.
Flod is correct, Firefox OS and Mozilla should be left in English.  Let's keep all branding in English for now, as it is the current Mozilla policy.

The discussion is to resume because there is new leadership in branding and Marketplace since this topic was hotly debated.  We will share any revised policy with the localization community.

Umesh, please make sure this policy is reflected in all projects you are working on.  I am collecting information from localization communities working in languages using different scripts than Latin.  This applies to all Indic language.  I will the email to the leaders and  they can help spread the words and gather feedback.

Hello Peiying,

I will make sure that we are following this policy for all our localization work. Will also spread information to other community in India.  

@Francesco I will update the Localized strings over here according to Mozilla policy.

Thanks for helping us out.

@Meghraj As already said by Peiying its Mozilla current policy so its same for all projects. For current and future work don't change product names. Also pass this information others too.
Okay, Thanks for clarify let me spread with others.
Yes, this is a company wide policy.

- Have you ever think  how a person who don't know latin script, how s/he will read "FirefoxOS" if not written in Hindi?
- Have you ever thought about how newspaper is writing a brand in newspaper or news channel?
- Better to register a brandname in Hindi also, a good idea indeed!
- Though Style Guide approved from Hindi community says to transliterate any Brand Name (http://fuelproject.org/styleguide/index ), so here our community members did the same! But if any how Firefox is so much 'strict' about brand then why not they put the name as placeholder like [BRANDNAME]!
- To respect diversity it is better to allow the community to take own decision, 'Transliterating' anything is not offensive! I am fully aware of the conventional logic behind not translating Brand Name. You can keep it somewhere in image form with ®™ like symbol! Just putting the points discussed among group of people of Hindi community. I also think, we, as a open source company, need to think out of box.
- Also two different scripts looks very ugly when come together, often!
