Hi community :)

The Mozilla Foundation is going to publish publicly its yearly activity
report this Thursday and we have created a new section on mozilla.org
which explains in details what the Mozilla project has done last year on
all fronts (products, websites, community, financials...). This is the
first time we do that and also the first time we really create localized
content for the foundation on mozilla.org (based on mozilla.com
framework, itself based on mozilla-europe.org multilingual framework,
now all merged).

If you are interested in translating this new section, please opt-in for
your locale in this bug:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=691023

For localizers who are interested and decide to opt-in, myself and Milos
will put the files for your locale on your svn repository and open the
corresponding bug with instructions. Localized sites ready on Thursday
would be released at the same time as en-US. Of course, translations can
be published gradually later as well, no problem with that.

In total the translation is 1800 words spread across 5 pages, making it
easy to share the load among several people for the bigger teams (As a
comparizon, the Features page for those who translated it was 3600 words
alone).

Cheers

Pascal

Just an idea - would it be possible to turn on
the subtitles for the video in
http://www-dev.allizom.org/sl/foundation/annualreport/2010/
depending on the locale?

Our webdev tried with the help of the Universal Subtitles webdev but we
haven't been able to integrate it correctly (compatibility with all
browsers, compatibility with javascript deactivated, no visual bugs,
correct locale detection of the video, videos located on out CDN, no
subtitles displayed for the English version, no significant performance
hit on the server... lots of things to take into account). We decided to
put a link on the side of the video to the video on Universal Subtitles
as a compromise.

We have just released the site in 12 locales (we had planned 7 initially
given the tight schedule!):

http://www.mozilla.org/foundation/annualreport/2010/

I'll keep publishing the remaining locales still in the works as well as
typo fixes this week.

Thanks and congratulations to all for the quick and efficient response!
