Here's the copy I was thinking of using for these pages.

John, please have a look and let me know what you think.

Just had a chat with John and here's the copy we've decided on for these two pages.

Jen, should I close this out or do you want to change it to an implementation bug?

Thanks, Matej.  I'll make this the implementation bug and add it to the Kanban board.

Thanks all!
Hi John and Matej - We'll get these coded for the L10N team to start their part of the work. Do we want to push the English changes out separately or wait for everything to be ready?

Pascal and Flod - Please see above.  We hope to push out the coded strings on Monday.
Mission is not localized yet (@pascal: maybe we should start?)

About is currently localized in 43 locales, so we need to push the strings out as soon as they're ready to grab.

I don't see any harm in pushing out English in advance. Generally would prefer to go live with languages as their ready rather than waiting for one big batch.

Pushing en-US means that the localized page will have that string in English, while all the rest is localized.
https://www.mozilla.org/fr/about/

Being such a prominent string, I'd leave at least some days to localizers to catch up with the new string.
Don't we have a way to update something in English and not have it get out of whack in the original localized version?
Not that I'm aware of.

To change en-US you need to modify the template, which will create new string identifiers and cause the existing ones to be unused.

Yes, the video subtitling is what is blocking us though, the Amara service doesn't really scale to our needs and my expericenc is that subtitling videos with this service is a massive amount of work to get it done. Let's talk about it tomorrow on IRC :)

Yes, we can put a contitionnal in the template until we get the localizations, like that:

{% if request.locale.startswith('en-') %}
    {{ _('Learn more about our projects, products and principles designed to help people take control and explore the full potential of their lives online.') }}
{% else %}
    {{ _('Whether you want to learn more about who we are, how to be a part of Mozilla or just where to find us, you’ve come to the right place.') }}
{% endif %}

We actually had a couple of helper functions for that on the php site but they weren't ported to bedrock, we may need to recreate them in python if this is a regular request.

Note that the above option works but we need to not forget to update the template once the string is translated to remove this conditionnal. Ideally that's not something we should do on a regular basis.
Thanks Pascal.

Maybe we do need to recreate this helper function because we do seem to use this option frequently. :)
