Hi Mohomodou, I noticed that the page is currently completely localized, but in order to enable it on production we need to set up an email address that will be used as a recipient for all inquiries.

Page on the dev server: https://www-dev.allizom.org/son/contribute/

Requirements for this email address:
* Ideally it should be an alias, or an address created for this specific purpose, managed by the community.
* It can't be a public mailing list for privacy reasons.

Some teams created a GMail account for this purpose and have shared access across team members.

We can setup autoresponders for each category (the message is sent automatically as soon as you send the form), but that's a lot of work and I don't believe it's useful for small communities. You can see the autoresponders here

My suggestion would be to great one generic autoresponder that explains:
* who's part of the Songhay community
* what kind of projects do you work on
* how they can get in touch to help with these projects

You can simply create a txt file and attach it to the bug, I'll take care of setting up the files on SVN.

Let me know if you need any more information.

Text for Contribute Page - Songhay Mozilla localization as requested in Bug 1113029. Let me know if it's appropriate. I think I don't need to add an email address

Sorry, probably unclear on my part.

1. The text needs to be in Songhay, it will be sent to whoever uses the form on the Get Involved page in Songhay. Every locale has its own set of autoresponders.

2. The email address is mandatory (I'll add that it shouldn't be a personal address). When someone fills the form, he will receive the autoresponder text, while this email address will receive the request.

Hello Francesco, thanks for stepping in! Is the text file above enough?

"* how they can get in touch to help with these projects" 
Will you set up a form for them to contact us?

Okay, I see. Then I will rewrite it in Songhay and add an email address.

Page is online and localized

I've just sent an email for the localization subject, and correctly got the localized autoresponder.

That's great. I'm "on the road" today if you don't hear me early enough. Until the late afternoon CET.

A batch of new strings (1200 words) showed up since this bug was opened. Got them translated. The web parts are again complete now.
