Description

5 years ago
We recently worked with the Creative team to produce these Firefox Marketplace call to action badges:

https://assets.mozillalabs.com/Projects/Firefox%20Marketplace/Badges/

These badges will be used by the Firefox OS apps developers to promote and share the link for the app download in Firefox Marketplace.

We want to offer a localized badge for your locale.

The first step is to provide a translation of the text on, this badge, the text is:

GET IT IN THE Firefox MARKETPLACE

You can look at the url above to see how this is rendered. You may have to adapt a bit the text so as to make it fit in the button. If the text layout on this button represents a challenge for your language, we can brainstorm here and tweak the text and/or the design to make the still button look good for your locale. 

Once we have the string translated, we can ask the Designer to actually integrate your text in the button and check that it is correct (fonts /ex).

Thanks
Note: don't try to commit your localization to the .lang file (the repository is read only). 

Please but your localization here in the bug and tell us when it can be considered final, we'll add it to the file.

If it fits (does it?), it suits me.
Pascalc can you confirm if the line in #2 fits? if so you can use that one, thanks

I am not sure, this was a request from the marketplace/developper relations team, but I am not sure a graphic designer is actually working on creating those badges. I'll ask at the summit, I think that Dees who asked for these badges comes to Brussels.

No news in 4 months, marking this as invalid. Strings were stored and will be used if necessary.

This seems more like WONTFIX to me. (It was a valid request, but one that will never be fulfilled.)

Hey there, 

I have taken over the localization of these buttons as they are being added to the Affiliates program. And as such I have some of the direction that was missing from this bug. 

The direction missing on how to localize marketplace is that the whole name "Firefox Marketplace" is a brand name and can't be altered. The way it was done, only Firefox was treated like a brand.

This is an example of how the brand team would like it treated, where the branding stays the same but, the words leading up to it change:

http://developer.android.com/distribute/googleplay/promote/badges.html

If you are interested, this is where we are tracking the design of the localized buttons: 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=952618 and where we discovered the issue.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this and thank you. 

Best, 
Chelsea

In the meantime, pushed last version of the string in r124346 while we wait for the image.
Looks OK by me. Thanks
