You should read this wiki page:

I see that you already created yourself a wiki page for your localisation at

Then, follow the instructions on the wiki to produce a
language pack you can distribute through Once you have
reached that stage, we can consider your pack for official status - although I
should warn you that this is a separate process with its own complexities.
Still, the community will still be able to get your pack from in the meantime.

If you have read carefully and find the documentation isn't good enough in any
way, please let us know and we will improve it.
Hi Jamil: how are you doing? Have you been able to make any progress?

So this isn't totally off, but it isn't close either.

I looked the source on Jamil's server, and the output of compare-locales is

missing: 993
keys: 590
unchanged: 2641
changed: 826
missingInFiles: 846
obsolete: 652
15% of entries changed

Granted, that's against the current 3.1 tree, but that's the target right now. And even if I just look at the existing strings, there are 2641 unchanged and only 826 changed ones. With a total of 15 % translated, we're just too far off.

I suggest doing the following:

Create a mercurial repository, use a current version of compare-locales,, and improve the localization locally.

You have a few dozen missing entities in browser/chrome/browser and several in toolkit/

Please, update those missing ones and we'll do another review round.

Also, take a look at your browser/searchplugins. You should have searchplugins there that are matching the ones listed in list.txt.

We will take care of the search plug-ins later on, but for now, please copy the following plugins from the bn-IN source (
* eBay-in
* yahoo-in
* rediff
* technorati
* wikipedia-bn

The remaining ones (amazondotcom, answers, creativecommons, google) are the en-US default sand will be picked up from the en-US source in the build process. No need to include the xml files for them.

Congrats, I did the initial landing.

Mods I did for the initial landing:

Reverted browser-region/ and toolkit's global/, those had badly translated strings in them. Please don't revert those without having someone look at the corresponding patches. shows the status of your locale for fx31x and fx32x, the repositories of immediate interest for you towards Firefox 3.1 (which we'll rebrand to 3.5 soon) are and the mozilla-1.9.1 repo, check out for details.

Please follow the communication around localizing Mozilla applications on .l10n, details on how to join are on In particular that's the place to watch out for announcements and to ask for help.
