It's my understanding that the best way to localize Firefox Messaging Experiments across many locales (at the time of writing) is to land the relevant strings into Nightly and have the strings ride the trains before they are used (via string ID) in the Experiment.

The tricky thing with these strings are that they will be used in a notification, which has fairly strict limits on length and layout. We ran into hard problems here before (see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1664510) around button text length, which appear to be limited to 19 characters.

I will attach a patch and solicit feedback from :flod to move this forward.

The strings are in asrouter.ftl since that's one of the few FTL
files loaded before Activity Stream processes messages. (A new file
could be made to work but won't work out of the box.) Since these
strings will be used by a Firefox Messaging Experiment and many of the
asrouter.ftl strings are used in this way already, it's a reasonable
home.
