Project Description Currently there's no way to track successful beta downloads on all locales outside of en-US. All international downloads occur upon download button click - no confirmation page is served. We're in the process of launching multiple paid marketing campaigns to help us reach aggressive Beta downloads (target goal is 2-4M ADUs before release candidate is available). Marketing efforts include an ad campaign, paid search campaign, and the Spread Firefox affiliate program to launch mid-September. Measuring the effectiveness of these campaigns and providing a good user experience to our Beta users is essential. To do so, we'd like to implement a light-weight "Thank You" page on all international beta download locales. Page Objectives 1. Provide a better user experience by thanking beta users for downloading beta 2. Remind beta users to provide feedback 3. Enable download tracking, which will allow us to track and optimize paid ad spend, as well as ability to both track and reward "Spread Firefox" affiliate program participants Technical Requirements * By "lightweight" the intent is to have this page contain text only and existing graphics * Localize in 39 beta supported locales * Use Beta template (not current template shown in mockup) * Contain Webtrends tracking code (Laura F. to provide) * Use Windows graphics in feedback screenshots Stakeholders Laura Mesa - Fx PMM Mayumi - Fx PMM NoBox - Ad Agency Laura Forrest - Marketing Metrics Timeline Copy/Mockup - Attached L10n - complete 8/30/2010 Pages live: ASAP, or before ad campaign launch date 9/8/2010 Relevant Links Beta Download Pages: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/beta http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/all-beta.html

> L10n - complete 8/30/2010 This is very unlikely, we are August 24, that means that you want the page built, translated and QAed in 40+ locales in less than 6 days, during summer time, while we are also in the middle of the beta 4 release which also means a lot of community work, during summer time when many of our usual localizers are away.

Pascal, do you think you can have the text localized for Sept 6/7th? Craig, are you just going to go ahead and build the pages, and then slip the localized text in afterwards?
(In reply to comment #5) > Craig, are you just going to go ahead and build the pages, and then slip the > localized text in afterwards? I'm building the basic shell of the page and I'll have to hand it off to another developer (Pascal?) to add in the functional bits to make it localizable (building in the locale detection, hooking it up to Verbatim, etc.). Since it's just one simple page I'm aiming to have my part done by the end of this week. So if all goes smoothly it may be ready for localization by the middle of next week, but that still only allows a few days before it's supposed to go live. I think we should identify the top priority locales (whoever does the most downloading) to try to have at least those covered before the 8th and other translations could be added as they're completed.

Sounds good. From my perspective, the top locales are: 2. Language/Locale Tiers Tier 1: US,Brazil, Germany, Spain, France Tier 2: United Kingdom, Russia, Italy, China, Poland Tier 3: Japan, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Mexico Pascal, however, probably has a better sense of what the top locales are, so I'll let him comment.
Please add these three meta tags to each new page so we can track beta download confirmations. <META NAME=”WT.si_n” CONTENT=”DownloadFirefox”> <META NAME=”WT.si_x” CONTENT=”1”> <META NAME=”WT.si_cs” CONTENT=”1”> Additional directions and documentation are available here: https://intranet.mozilla.org/WebAnalytics#Custom_Conversion_Metrics

I can help with that.
I am building the page now (btw, the en-US version of it is quite a mess ;) ) I intend to put it in ab-CD/download/ and not in ab-CD/products/download.html, no need to reproduce a url scheme that dates back to firefox 1.0 when we had a very different file structure.
(In reply to comment #10) > I am building the page now (btw, the en-US version of it is quite a mess ;) ) Since I'm busy with other projects and wouldn't have been able to start on this until Friday, I'm more than happy to let you take it over if it buys us more time for l10n. Reassigning to you for now. Just let me know if you need a hand with anything.

Thanks Craig, I should have the page ready in a few hours and will file bugs tomorrow for locales to start translations. If I have specific questions, I will not hesitate to ping you in the bug :)

If I have specific questions, I > will not hesitate to ping you in the bug :) Awesome. Also, spoke with Blake and he explained that we just need one page and that the content would dynamically change depending on the locale the user downloads. From what you wrote above, it sounds like you have everything under control, but I just wanted to put that in there in case. Thanks!
initial version in r73045 http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/fr/download/?product=firefox-4.0b4&os=linux&lang=fr http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/fr/download/?product=firefox-3.6.8&os=linux&lang=fr beta message only displayed for betas.
Transition page activated for French in r73046 http://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/fr/firefox/beta/
Alternative basic styling implemented in r73047 beta styling: https://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/fr/download/?product=firefox-4.0b4&os=linux&lang=fr stable styling: https://www-trunk.stage.mozilla.com/fr/download/?product=firefox-3.6.8&os=linux&lang=fr
Just spoke with Pascal. We will remove the the Feedback image and accompanying text from the page--it's too much graphics work for the time we have to get this going. We can tweak the concept later if we want, but right now the thank you message gets the job done. Thanks.
some restyling + french version done in r73050
r73063 also changes all-beta.html to support transition pages
Tested on Linux/Mac/WinXp/Vista with Firefox/Chrome/IE/Safari/Opera, works fine
http://www.mozilla.com/fr/firefox/beta/ http://www.mozilla.com/fr/firefox/all-beta.html Laura, please check that you do get hits recorded in Webtrends for the French locale, thanks.

Yes, hits are being recorded on the URLs above. I also see the conversion tag in the code of www.mozilla.com/fr/download.
I will be filing per locale bugs shortly.
Laura(f) can you also check that the es-AR locale is having its hits recorded? http://www.mozilla.com/es-AR/firefox/beta/ Should have at least 1 hit :)
tracking bug for localization is bug #591217 (21 locales done for now)

FYI, we now have 39 locales having a transition page tracked on mozilla.com for beta downloads.
Is it OK to close this?
I believe it's okay to close. Pascal, can you confirm?
nope, we have new locales added with each beta release and this page will be reused for stability releases in the future, we will close the bug once we have our 80+ locales done :)
The translation done for all locales we ship as of today except a couple of unmaintained locales we will probably drop at some point (Mongolian, Georgian, Tamil). marking fixed.
