We've recently created a Mozilla brochure in English that we can print
and hand out to people at events. A few people have contacted me to
find out how we can make this available in other languages. I wanted
to post here to talk about the best way to go about making this
happen.

Right now the brochure file is just posted on my blog, but I'm working
on a page for www.mozilla.org that will host all relevant files. One
question I have is how should I make this available so it's easy for
people to translate? The source file right now is in Illustrator, but
I'm not sure if that's the most user-friendly way to make that
available.

Any suggestions, ideas or comments are welcome. Feel free to either
post on my blog, contact me at david at mozillafoundation dot org, or
reply here. I can also open a bug for this if that would make
coordinating easier.

You can put all the source text on a wiki. That's easy to translate.

Then you can get the translated text from the wiki, put it in
Illustrator and create localized pdf files.

It would be good to have a link or few words on the l10n team in question.

Hi David,

I don't use computer-aided presentation software, so I'm not sure about
the FOSS alternative to Illustrator that localizers can easily get.
Maybe Scribus?
