Description

6 years ago
Hi there:

Please localize the Student Reps sign-up (registration) form -- http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/newsletter/studentreps -- with the following locales:

Albanian
Spanish
German
Hungarian
Polish*

*The Polish version of the site in on stage: http://studentreps.stage.mozilla.com/pl. We will soon decide whether to push it live or hold off until updated content for the website is finalized and presented for localization.

The current sign-up form is only available in English; however, the rest of the website is offered in the above mentioned locales: http://studentreps.mozilla.org.

Please be aware that there is one string on the form that you will need to add below 'Last Name,' which is 'Date of Birth.' While this string is currently under privacy review (see bug 680308), Stas advised me that it's easier to add a string from the outset and take it away later, rather than add the string once the rest of the content has been localized.

Timeline: The Student Reps program is beginning a soft launch the week of 19 Dec 2011, and we'll need key tools like this one localized and online ASAP or by 23 Dec 2011.

James Long can provide info for the localizers about the back-end of the Student Reps website and/or the sign-up page. Bug 679817 might give some insight as well.

This is my first l10n bug, and I realize the Student Reps program has been dormant for a while, so please feel free to ask questions and point out blockers and any other considerations.

You can read more about the Student Reps program on the wiki: https://wiki.mozilla.org/ReMo/Student_Reps.

Thanks!

Hi, again--

Did anyone start work on these projects? In Mary's absence (she's on PTO until Feb. 6) -- who is coordinating Engagement projects with the L10n team? (For example: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/l10n-12-19.)

Since filing this bug, there have been a few updates:

 - We're not adding 'Date of Birth' after all
 - Tracking additional changes to the form to in bug 711539

We'll need to get the changes from bug 711539 up on stage and approved by Privacy/EULA and legal teams before we start localizing the form.

I'll update this bug with a more firm target milestone later this week. In the meantime, please provide a little more insight as to how we will complete work on this bug (once bug 711539 is resolved) in a timely fashion? This process is a new to me and I may need some guidance. For instance, should I complete the Project Request Form for this bug (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Template:L10n:ProjectRequestForm)?

Thanks!

The ReMo Council[1] decided earlier this year that English with be the default language of the Reps program and all tools and resources therein. Hence, we are discontinuing localization of the Student Reps program website.

Thanks for your time and consideration.
