MDN is used by people all over the world as a reference and guide to Web technologies, as well as to the internals of Firefox itself. Our localization communities are a key part of the Mozilla project; their work in translating and localizing our documentation helps people around the world develop for the open Web. If you'd like to learn more about our localization teams, join one of the teams, or even start a new localization, this is the place to begin.
- Localization projects
- All localization and translation work done on MDN is done by our amazing community of volunteers. This article lists all the localization projects, their contributors, and other details.
- Per-locale RSS feeds
- You can monitor RSS feeds for each language, so that you are alerted to changes on a given language's contents. This page provides a list of those feeds; you should add the appropriate one for your language when you start your localization project.
- Starting a new MDN localization
- If your language doesn't already have a localization project on MDN, and you have the time and the enthusiasm to do so, you should consider starting a new one. This article is a guide to how to go about starting a localization project.
There are several useful tools that you'll use during localization work:
- Used for translation of strings across multiple Mozilla projects, including the MDN user interface (as well as the Firefox user interface).
- A utility provided by Mozilla France, which lets you search for occurrences of an English string, finding all the various translations into a target locale that are used throughout Mozilla code. Useful for finding the preferred translations for words or phrases.
