Firefox Tracking Flags

(Not tracked)


To release Firefox in Kabyle, we need a way to promote it. We do that via https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/ web pages. There's a set of pages that are essential to having a successful Firefox localization and promotion, and those depend on the files listed below. 

flod or Pascal will follow up here when the initial setup work is done. After that, you'll find the files to localize in GitHub.

The repositories you want to work with are located at https://github.com/mozilla-l10n/www.mozilla.org/tree/master/kab/ and https://github.com/mozilla-l10n/fhr-l10n/tree/master/kab/ . Files that need to be translated are, namely:

in https://github.com/mozilla-l10n/www.mozilla.org/tree/master/kab/


in https://github.com/mozilla-l10n/fhr-l10n/tree/master/kab/

There will also be some less important files available for you to translate, but please focus on the ones listed here first.

The status of web parts for your locale on GitHub can be checked at this URL (updated every 15 minutes)

All the translations you do will be available on the testing website, http://www-dev.allizom.org/kab/ , around 15-30 minutes after commit.

The Kabyle team will be driving this bug to completion.
Corrections: ignore newsletter.lang, the point of reference for mozilla.org is Peiying.
Locale: kab / Kabyle

We don't know how can we be involved. We are trying the kab urls. They are not working.

We tried to take a look to french files to see if there is more strings to translate. Strings seems to be those are used to be translated  inMozilla.org project.

We are now translating Mozilla.org.

This bug depends on bug 1296550. Until that's fixed, those URLs won't be available. As suggested, please hold on translating files, because they might not be necessary.

The translation is done on Pootle. I guess they will be be synchronized into Github?
You're right. I assumed the sync already happened given Peiying's comment, but it didn't.

All files are indeed localized, I think you won the award as fastest locale ever! Please let us know when you've been able to test most of the website.

Hi Francesco,

The translation, corrections is going on almost everyday after work for 2 or 3 hours  sometimes more.
Now I am taking a look to the dev website  (http://www-dev.allizom.org/kab/ )to see the render.

The team has already translated a lot of strings offline. We used to share files between members. We are just reviewing them. I am used to put them online.

I tested today all translated pages and corrected some errors. I will re-test tomorrow after next Sync as I got some wrong strings.

Kabyle community is happy today !!!
Just run another import, dev server should be updated within 10 minutes.

Some links are not redirected well to the good locale. For example, from the Home page to the page (https://www-dev.allizom.org/kab/firefox/new/), I am redirected to the fr locale ((https://www-dev.allizom.org/kab/firefox/new/).

I tested it on Firefox 48 (french locale) and Developer Edition (Kabyle locale) on Windows 7 french.
Can you explain exactly the steps to reproduce? If I go to https://www-dev.allizom.org/kab/ and click "Sider Firefox", I get Italian because that's the first language in my accept_languages header.

Can you go in about:config and check the value of the key intl.accept_languages? 

I've also updated this key in Pootle to 'kab-dz,kab,fr-FR,fr,en-US,en' (it was 'kab, kab-dz, en')

The idea is that you go from precise to broader locale codes, if French is a good fallback for Kabyle users, it should be there before English.
Side note: if instead you mean that you're asked to download the French build, that's expected. We're still waiting for repositories to be set-up.

I retested. All links are working fine.

All files listed on this bug are now translated and reviewed. Please, should we go ahead with the translation of mozilla.org or we must wait for guidance?
The dashboard is empty, which means you translated all the files. I'll keep the bug open while we wait to enable the locale on production, but I want to wait to have builds before doing that.
