hy-AM (Armenian) moving forward

Robert Sargsyan has been localizing Firefox into Armenian for a really long time through Narro.
He recently has contacted me to get things rolling since he has translated 98-99% (94% according to compare-locales) of the strings.

It is now my turn to get into the technical details and move it to mercurial. These are the steps that we have taken:
  • Robert ported the strings from 3.5 to 3.6 (Narro allows you to do this)
  • Through Narro's interface I exported the project and downloaded the zip file that it generates
  • I checked out my clone of the Armenian 1.9.2 tree
  • I overwrote my tree with the contents of the zip file
  • I run compare-locales like this:
    compare-locales /Users/armenzg/moz/repos/mozilla-1.9.2/browser/locales/l10n.ini .. hy-AM-1.9.2
  • I removed the files that were indicated to be removed
  • I pushed my changes to my repository
What comes next (if I am not mistaken)?
  • generate a langpack
  • submit it to AMO (submit page)
  • promote the add-on
  • get people's review
  • convince drivers to give us commit access
  • push the changes to the official Mozilla hy-AM repositories
We won't make it for 3.6 and I can't wait to see what the future holds for this language.

Big thanks to Serge!

  1. This is really pretty neat, Armen. Think back to your very first experience working on Mozilla, and your goal to do this localization yourself. Fast-forward to today, and you're the guy who gets to integrate it into Mozilla! Amazing.

  3. Dave I am really excited to be able to help after all the disappointment of not being able to translate it myself. All my learning of the process did not fall into empty since I was able to help Serge to focus rather than having to learn the whole world when he just wanted to translate.

    Dave thanks for opening this opportunity; I wouldn't have had this opportunity if you had not pushed it.
