Today, in the midst of all the other excitement for the Firefox13 release, I’d like to draw attention to a special achievement.
The Khmer version of Firefox shipped today as an officially supported release. No longer “just” a beta, the Cambodian people can now use an official release version of Firefox, in their native Khmer language, with identical features and security as every other Firefox 13 user.
This has been a long, huge undertaking by Vannak, Javier and everyone else on the Khmer localization team. I cant thank them enough for all their work. Its been a real privilege to get to know them, online and while I was in Phnom Penh earlier this year. I’m proud of their work, and honored to know them.
ps: If you ever want to meet some cool folks, and help out with future Khmer localization, come over to http://www.mozillakm.org/ or the mozilla.dev.l10n.km newsgroups and say hi – they’d love to meet you!
