A new Firefox profile includes a link to the "Getting started" page on the Bookmarks toolbar. The objective of this page is to provide the users with a few task-based starting points. They could use them to enjoy the web and discover sites that will help them get the most out of Firefox, and the Internet in general. This page will be aimed towards beginning and intermediate Web users. We want to promote community/user oriented collaborative sites with good user experience in your region and language, and good standards support.

The current en-US defaults for this page are:
 The 'Work' category: Google Docs, Remember the Milk, LinkedIn, Clipmarks Add-on
 The 'Learn' category: Wikipedia, Topix, HowStuffWorks.com, Answers Add-on
 The 'Play' category: YouTube, Hype Machine, Miro, PicLens Add-on
 The 'Connect' category: Criagslist, Yelp, Facebook, Shareaholic Add-on 

(See the en-US page at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/central/.)

We would like to provide a good set of links on this page for our Tamil (Sri Lanka) users.

First, the localization team and Stas (Stas Malolepszy) will look at the market for your language and come up with a good candidates. Sarves, we'll need your input on this, of course. The guidelines for making recommendations are on https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox_web_services_guidelines.

Second, once we have a good list of candidates, your localization team will localize the 'Getting Started' index.html file which can be found here: http://viewvc.svn.mozilla.org/vc/projects/mozilla.com/trunk/en-US/firefox/central/index.html?content-type=text%2Fplain&view=co changing the en-US default as agreed in the first step.

The logos should be named sites-<sitename>.png and should be 110px wide and 65px high on white or transparent background. Stas can help on getting the logos from the website owners.

The localized index.html and the logos should be then attached in a ZIP archive to this bug, and a review should be requested from Stas (stas@mozilla.com) and Pascal (pascalc@gmail.com). Once the review have been granted, Pascal will take over to push the localized page on the server.

The corresponding bug for ta-IN is bug 485046, not sure if we can get synergies here between the two.

Thank you.
There was a a paragraph change on this page since this bug was filed, the updated reference file for your localization is:

With only one option, the connect tab is a bit empty I think.
Sarves, could you provide a translation with all options in the connect tab? Thanks

Hello Pascal,


These two are not relevent to our country, so didnt add these to the connect tab. We are searching for good site to add to connect. For the time being can we go only with facebook?
If really need I will translate and attach those two also, we are ok for adding that too. Hope in future releases we can change this.

Especially http://www.gumtree.com not even list our country. Though http://www.qype.co.uk lists our country, there is no active participation. 

We better go with these two also and we will find some good ones for next release. I will attach the modified file here.

ta_LK translation

Translation with modified connect tab
your updated file is on trunk:

I am leaving this bug open for now for a later upate of the links but remove it from release blockers since the page is translated.
Whiteboard: [translated, not localized]
I've added the whiteboard status to be able to return to this easily in the future, when we'll want to update the links. We'll probably file a new bug then, so closing this one, as it isn't blocking anymore.
