MozillaTranslator.org Now Online!

Henrik Lynggaard writes, "MozillaTranslator.org is now up and running. Currently there is a link to the program and a couple of M17 localizations (Bosnian, Croatian, German, Japanese, Norwegian, Portugese, Swedish and Welsh).

"The idea behind mozillaTranslator.org is to create a central place for all localizations of most XUL based products. In the next weeks there will come online some nice features for the translators, so please register if you are a translator. And also if you have a mozilla based product (HELLO forumzilla!).

"Of course the link is: http://www.mozillaTranslator.org."

Mozilla supports localization packets that makes it easier to convert Mozilla, or a Mozilla-based product, for use into another language.

This isn't the same as mozDEV.org, since mozDEV is for Mozilla-based projects, this helps Mozilla-based projects get converted to other languages outside English.

Localization is just a reference to the language in one's local area. Mine's is, obviously, English, but for someone else it may be German, Japanese, Spanish, etc.
