Description Kadir Topal [:atopal] 2012-02-06 01:16:15 PST
The ready for localization email says:

> To localize the document, click the following link, or paste it into
> your browser's location bar:

However with the en-US part left in, this is redirected to

That's the English edit page and not useful to localizers. Please remove the en-US part from the URL

It should probably be go to this page instead: ?

Erm, I have no idea why that got posted while I was typing.

I meant to ask: Kadir, would you prefer simply removing the locale from the url, or should we go to /locales (as ricky mentioned)? Seems like locales would be the safer user path since they can select which locale to translate to, but then again it also has the one additional click. Opinions?
Comment 4 Kadir Topal [:atopal] 2012-02-20 07:02:33 PST
Tanay, please go with what Ricky suggested, that is the safer option indeed.
