Hello To respond to your questions :

The experience is a little different, we have taken a lot of the work made for the localization of mozilla in french. We have copied the files when they are identicals and uses them when there was difference between the mozilla and Firebird versions. The works was a little different from the SeaMonkey also because we have not made diff between 2 versions (1.3 and now 1.4b for mozilla for exemple) but rather uses multiples sources of informations : English firebird (0.5 and 0.6), french phoenix 05 and mozilla (english and french).

We have also worked on a nightly (because of the time between 0.5 and 0.6) so we have checked regulary on bonzai and lxr for evolutions in locale directory.

It was a lot of work but we are happy to make it. Go now to 0.7 or 1.5 :)

Ps. There are a few strings no localisable in firebird (peharps mozilla too), I have open some bugs in bugzilla for them.

Bye and thanks for the work. Filip
