Hi guys, per my email, I'd love to have your help localizing snippets for an upcoming retention campaign.  

I filled out the l10n form, though I'm not sure if It's right: https://wiki.mozilla.org/FFOlympics

Please ask any questions you need.   The Snippet copy is almost done, we'll have 2 strings.  Thanks in advance.

Thanks Tara, once you have the snippet copies written down, please put them in the comments of this bug.
Hey Tara,

Form looks great! Just gonna move it off of main wikimo to the L10n namespace: https://wiki.mozilla.org/L10n:FFOlympics
Please tell us in advance how long these strings could be ;-)

Hi there, sure.  The current draft are these two strings:


> Cheer on your country and customize Firefox with your nation's flag.

> Join Firefox in celebrating the global spirit of community that's bringing
> the world together this summer.

Not sure if it will work in every locale, but I tried to keep these under 140 characters so they could be reused as tweets. Just something for the localizers to keep in mind.
German (de) translation:

Feuern Sie Ihr Land an und passen Sie Firefox mit Ihrer Nationalflagge an.

Feiern Sie mit Firefox den weltweiten Gemeinschaftsgeist, der diesen Sommer die Welt zusammenbringt.


It even is below the 140 characters limit.

Hey guys, just to be clear, the copy hasn't been 100% finalized yet.  I was simply sharing the current strings to give you a sense of length.  will have final strings inserted in here soon.  thanks again!
guys, wait that the copy is finalized ;) I will put it in your snippet.lang file

Hey guys, can you please give me a deadline for this? I'm building out a calendar and I am not clear on when the strings are due to ensure that we get these in/live on time.  Please advise.  Thanks.
Tara, are you asking the copy writers or l10n-drivers? If you ask l10n-drivers, as far as I know we haven't yet received the final snippet to localize from you :)

Thanks Pascal. Yes I know, I'm trying to see when copy from me would be due to your team in order to have localization done in time. So I'm looking for a hand-off deadline from me to you/l10n.

I sent an email about this yesterday btw. regarding all localization related to the campaign and hand-off dates for me to work against.  if you can help answer those questions I'd appreciate it.
For the snippet itself, end of next week is fine for the locales your listed, of course the sooner you provide the text, the more additional locales we can get :)
Per bug 765854, final snippet strings are:

-----------------
Join Firefox in celebrating the global spirit of community. <Watch the video.>

<Customize Firefox with your nation's flag> and celebrate the global spirit of community.
-----------------

I believe the text within "<>" is meant to be hyperlinked.
