We'd like to make a couple of changes and updates that impact localized copy on the Firefox (stable channel) in Android Market:

-In the description, please change the first paragraph to read: "Go from desktop to mobile without interruption. Firefox for Android is fast, easy to use and completely customizable. And it's built on the same great platform as our desktop version. So you can take your Firefox anywhere you go."

[This really means removing one sentence and combining two sentences]

-Localize the What's New section bullets to:
1) Added Do Not Track privacy feature, enabling users to tell websites if they prefer to opt-out of online behavioral tracking
2) Improved page load speed, especially on 3G networks, and improved overall panning responsiveness
3) Improved compatibility with SwiftKey keyboard
4) Continued growth to mobile add-ons gallery, including over 20 featured add-ons

-For Firefox Beta channel, please localize the following promo text:

"Get Firefox Beta. Experience cutting edge features and provide your feedback."
Depends on: 663983
Please grant access to mozilla.srbija@gmail.com so I can actually see what's going on.

Thanks.

Sure. I made the link public, but will add you right now.
Hi Milos - Can you provide a status update? Rel Eng, Thomas and I want to make sure this localization request will be prioritized for Monday, June 20, so that we have the content by Tuesday, June 21 (release day).
I'm going to file bugs and ask localizers to finish this up as soon as possible. In case not all locales are done, what happens?
Caitlin: Milos has questions as to what we're supposed to be localizing; could you, or someone else, clarify?
Hmm, I spoke to him live yesterday and we discussed this. 

Milos, any other questions that have come up?  The yellow highlight is new content. The strike through is the copy that needs to be reviewed from all of the existing localizations.
Caitlin, one thing I don't know is when and where(which bug) we translated that description? What I've been working on is slightly different. I only know about http://etherpad.mozilla.com:9000/8Frb3qj7T8
Is there not a database (i.e. http://l10n-misc.stage.mozilla.com/androidmarket/) with the latest localized strings from when we did this localization for Firefox 4? Usually I get pointed to the translations, but can't seem to fine the l10n URL.

Thanks to Stas, I've filed bugs and make them block this one. You'll get bugmail when each of the bugs get resolved.

It's important that every locale on the market has a translation because without text for any of the locales, the promo text can not be saved.  I supposed worst-case English could be put in the field but it seems very poor form to place English text in the boxes that specifically request the %lang% text.
Can you explain what the promo text is and where it's displayed?
I'm going to guess the promo text is there when you're looking for apks to install.

We already have localized promo text, with the English currently:

"Take Firefox anywhere. Go from desktop to mobile without interruption."

The localized versions seem to have 'Firefox 4' in them, so if we don't get those re-localized, I think we can change the 4 to a 5.
Thanks Aki -

For Stable release, we just want to remove 4 from promo text (and not add 5 as we're dropping versioning). Can you do this manually?

For Beta release, the bug is asking for different promo text to be localized so that you can adjust the promo graphic.

Yes, done and saved a draft.

Is there a bug tracking this?
I suppose we could potentially copy and paste the existing Firefox (non-Beta) promo text.

n/m, I see the translated beta promo text etherpad now ( http://etherpad.mozilla.com:9000/mobile-beta-promo1 )
Ok, I've updated the draft with the strings we have currently:

en      DONE
ja      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new
fr      DONE
cs      DONE
es      DONE
ru      DONE
de      DONE -- removed one space to get under 500 chars
ko      MISSING DESCRIPTION -- added what's new, removed '4' from firefox 4 description
it      DONE
pt      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new
pl      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new
nl      DONE
zh-TW   DONE

If we don't have the missing translations by EOD, we can either
a) publish with English strings, or
b) remove the locale (I'm not sure what this does).

I reopened bug 664941 to track the missing ko description.

Sadly, the text field has a max of 80 characters.
For some locales, I was able to remove the first sentence (Get Firefox Beta.) and squeak under 80 characters; in others, the second sentence was over 80 characters by itself.

Holding off on this.
Added the new ko description.

Current status, trimmed:

ja      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new, removed '4' from description
de      DONE -- removed one space from What's New to get under 500 chars
ko      DONE
pt      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new, removed '4' from description
pl      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new, removed '4' from description
* Replaced the pt What's New with the new translation; description is still Firefox 4 without the '4'.
* Replaced the pl What's New and Description.  This is done, but the patch needs to be checked in to svn.

ja      NEEDS TRANSLATING -- added english what's new
de      DONE -- removed one space to get under 500 chars
ko      DONE
pt      What's New is updated; Description is Firefox 4 desc without the '4'
pl      DONE (patch needs to be checked in)
Thanks for these updates!

Aki, all depencies are fixed, can I close this bug?
* Was the pl patch checked in?
* I still see Firefox 4 in the pt-PT description:
http://svn.mozilla.org/projects/l10n-misc/trunk/androidmarket/pt-PT/release.txt

Also, this.
If we want to close this bug, we should probably have followup bugs for these last few items.

I just checked it in.

We shouldn't close this bug until all changes that Aki made to actually be able to use the description are ported to the SVN repo.  Milos, would you like to work on this with Aki?  The comments in this bug should be a good start.
Hi,
On the search result page for French, a   is displayed as is:

Passez de votre ordinateur à votre mobile sans interruption !

it should be displayed like this:

Passez de votre ordinateur à votre mobile sans interruption !

Please just replace the entity with a regular space.

Also, the following sentence should be removed (it doesn't appear in the svn repository though):

De votre PC à votre téléphone sans interruption.

Because the sentence that follows this one says the same thing.
Thanks

Hm, the only place I see this is in the Promo Text, which is currently

"Emportez Firefox partout. De votre PC à votre téléphone sans interruption."

which looks right to my non-French-speaking eyes.  Is it possible that it's a combination of the Promo Text + the Description ?
Aki,
Yes, it sounds like this is case. So that should be the same in every locale.
I can see these sentences side-by-side in the search result page and in the Description. This is a bit weird (well redundant in fact).
We can ask Google if they can change how the market is laid out, but I'm not sure how effective that will be.

We could also avoid repeating ourselves in the description and promo text.
That would require re-localizing one or the other.
I'm leaning towards marking this as something to keep in mind for the Firefox 6 cycle.
Aki,
Agreed, it's not a blocker. Let's keep this in mind for Firefox 6.
Can we close this one?
Sure, let's file new bugs for any issues.
We can hopefully learn from this bug for Firefox for Mobile 6.0.

What about the changes that Aki made in the market to make things fit in?  AFAICT, they haven't been ported back to SVN.
Aki, can you send me the changes you did per locale on the copies (email is ok, I can commit for you)
You need to log in before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
