(This is so important to FirefoxOS localization that its worth cross-posting.)
There’s two sets of locales here, so to be precise:
- existing desktop and unagi, otoro builds: ar, en-US, fr, es, pt-BR, zh-TW. These locales are specifically chosen because they help developers debug various font-specific issues (right-to-left, etc).
- new desktop builds: ar, as, bn-BD, ca, cs, cy, de, el, en-US, eo, es, et, eu, ff, fr, fy-NL, ga-IE, gd, gl, he, hi-IN, ht, hu, id, it, ja, ko, lij, ml, nl, or, pa, pl, pt-BR, ro, ru, sl, sq, sv-SE, te, tr, ur, zh-CN, zh-TW. These are the list of locales being actively worked on. We expect this list to continue growing. For progress, track this file: https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/blob/master/shared/resources/languages-all.json
Big thanks to bhearsum, stas, aki and others for making this happen. And hey, if you want to help with localizing boot2gecko / FirefoxOS into your locale, please contact the friendly folks in dev.l10n newsgroups – they’d be delighted with your help.
