We have a new download page replacing the current download page and focused on messaging the fact that Firefox is designed by a non-profit and defends the interests of the end user and no one else.

Here are the pages for your locale:

You need to translate the file download.lang in your svn repository for, here is the link to the file:

It is only a few strings but since it is the download page, it is a key page. Please check that the pages looks visually good and that the message is at the same time engaging and ok for users of your locale.

If you see visual bugs or need adjustments for your locale, please mention them in this bug.

You can translate this page by svn and just add the revision number of your commit or you can attach the translated file to this bug and I will commit for you.

Where/when is this string used?
this string is not visible on the page, it is part of a <meta description=""> tag, when Google spiders the page, it will use this sentence as the description for the link in its results.
Hi Flod,
I just wanted to make sure no string was giving you too much headache.
This is our main download page and the messaging presents our brand, so it is important that we get it right and that our localization resonates in Italy. It's totally ok if you need to depart from the original English text to do that.

We put together a brief in order to give localizers more context and background. Hopefully this should help you come up with something appropriate and idiomatic if the original copy doesn't work for you.

Here is the link to the brief:

I am available to discuss if you have any question or issues regarding these pages (
