Hello,

Tamazight is an official language in two countries, a national language in many Other countries. We already have a lot of projects launched in this language, the best reference among them will be : Facebook.

1). What Mozilla product are you hoping to localise?

* All Mozilla products.

2). Which language is it and what language code should be used? (ISO-639-1, ISO-639-3, country code).

* Language ISO 639-3 : zgh
* Alphabet ISO 15924 : Tfng
* Country code (if required) : MA

3). How many plural forms are in the language?

* There are two plural forms :
* {number} is 0, 1, or between 11 and 99.
* {number} is between 2 and 10 or greater than 99.

To give an example, how would you translate the following phrases:

- *0 rocks* : 0 ⵏ ⵓⵥⵕⵓ
- *1 rock* : 1 ⵏ ⵓⵥⵕⵓ
- *2 rocks* : 2 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *3 rocks* : 3 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *4 rocks * : 4 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *5 rocks* : 5 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *10 rocks* : 10 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *20 rocks* : 20 ⵏ ⵓⵥⵕⵓ
- *100 rocks* : 100 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *1000 rocks* : 1000 ⵏ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ
- *I see 0 rocks on the ground* : ⴷⴰ ⵥⵕⵕⴰⵖ 0 ⵏ ⵓⵥⵕⵓ ⴳ ⵡⴰⴽⴰⵍ
- *I see 1 rock on the ground* : ⴷⴰ ⵥⵕⵕⴰⵖ 1 ⵏ ⵓⵥⵕⵓ ⴳ ⵡⴰⴽⴰⵍ
- *I see rocks on the ground* : ⴷⴰ ⵥⵕⵕⴰⵖ ⵉⵥⵕⴰⵏ ⴳ ⵡⴰⴽⴰⵍ
4) Are you hoping to localise alone or do you have friends that will join
you ?

* I have a lot of friends that will join me ; we’re a team.

Thank you.

This doesn't work. I suggest picking a couple of smaller projects
(i.e. not FIrefox) and see how that works. In some cases there are
external limitations (e.g. support on the OS, like in iOS).

Are there specific projects you'd be interested in?

I'm also not sure if we're going to have problems with the font
support. Do you have any experience with it?

We can start with Firefox for Android, Calendar and Thunderbird as a first step.

There is no problem with the font support for Windows, Android and iOS…

Thank you.

Some details:
- Thunderbird is as large as Firefox, has a lot of shared strings with
Firefox, and ships on a mostly yearly cycle
- Calendar only ships as part of Thunderbird
- Firefox for Android is not actively developed, and has a lot of
shared strings with Firefox

Examples of smaller and active projects are:
- Firefox Send (website, potential issues with font support)
- Firefox for iOS (if it's supported by iOS).

Hi,

I've found that Firefox Send will be so easy to translate; so please open the Tamazight project.

Thank you.

I've created the locale on Pontoon and added Firefox Send. I'll leave
Firefox for iOS to Delphine.

Note that you need to create your account on Pontoon in order to set
up permissions.

Hello,

I just noticed that I'm a CONTRIBUTOR, not a MANAGER for the Tamazight project.
Please give me more power by giving me the MANAGER status.

I've enabled Firefox iOS on Pontoon, should be available within the next
15min, after the next Pontoon sync.
Here is some documentation for Firefox iOS
<https://mozilla-l10n.github.io/localizer-documentation/products/firefox_ios/testing.html>,
please reach out directly to me if you have any questions (I'm the project
manager in charge of mobile localizations).

Thanks for your interest in working on all this, and happy localizing!
cheers
