Our site and community are dedicated to provide localizations to extensions (for Mozilla-family apps using Gecko)
  • developers (or their representative) upload their extension(s) using the Web Translation System (WTS)
  • then volunteer translators around the world provide localization for free. That simple.

For all nations which don't have English as national language it is very important to have their locale included in the official author's build, because if a user looks for an extension in big web sites such as addons.mozilla.org they will find the extension in their language immediately. Moreover, if the locale is not included in the official build, the user will find XUL errors if they automatically update the extension with Firefox or another Mozilla application.
Because of this fact, we decided to start a world project, named BabelZilla, with the goal to internationalize the extensions!
Thus we contribute to spread open source applications worldwide.
For more information click Read More!
The process for a localization is really simple and normally its application is composed of three steps:
1) A literal human translation is made.
2) The extension is manually repackaged and the human translation is checked (here or in the various National Portals).
3) Various improvements and/or corrections noticed during the second (or of testing) phase are applied to the first human literal translation.
Moreover, if developers need a specific locale, they can look in BabelZilla's list of translators for someone who can provide it.
If you have any questions about the Web Translation System (WTS), then please visit our Help - Q & A section. Our Help - Q & A section is in English and other languages.
Here you will be able to let translators discover your extension and manage their translations uploading files or let every translator know that there are update and, in one sentence, create a team of contributor which is one of the most important point for open source software philosophy.

This site can be a place where you can discuss with other extension authors too, and so you can give your contribution to the others or ask for something you need.

You may even learn new things!
For example: it's possible to make the extension description in install.rdf localizable, too!
