Hello Asmitul!

Thanks for reaching out!

We would be happy to help you. My first question would be is this a request
for *someone* to localize a Mozilla product into Uyghur or are *you*
interested in being set up to localize a Mozilla product?

If the latter, what type of devices do Uyghur speakers typically have
access to? Desktop/laptop computers, iPhones, Android smartphones? I would
recommend starting with a product on a platform with the highest potential
for impact for Uyghur speakers.

To get Uyghur set up in Pontoon, we need some additional information.
Specifically, how many plural forms are in the Uyghur language?
To give an example, how would you translate the following sentences

- *0 rocks* :
- *1 rock* :
- *2 rocks* :
- *3 rocks* :
- *4 rocks * :
- *5 rocks* :
- *10 rocks* :
- *20 rocks* :
- *100 rocks* :
- *1000 rocks* :
- *I see 0 rocks on the ground* :
- *I see 1 rock on the ground* :
- *I see rocks on the ground* :

Thanks,
Jeff

Thanks for your response, Asmitul. Since Android is what is most used by
Uyghur speakers, I'm CC-ing the Program Manager for mobile localization,
Delphine. She'll be able to get Uyghur set up and can work with you to
select the right first product to localize on Android.

Best,
Jeff

Hi Asmitul,

Welcome onboard! I'll gladly get you set up on Android.
I'll reach out to you directly with more information about the process. In
the meantime, can you please create an account on Pontoon
<https://pontoon.mozilla.org/> please?

Many thanks!
delphine
