[b2g] v1.1 localization update

Quick update about l10n and l10n QA for b2g (v1.1):

we'll be finished testing l10n on firefoxOS by *Tuesday July 16th*. So don't be surprised if you see the number of l10n and l12y bugs rise by then.

In fact, there are a LOT of truncated / overlapping text issues, which 
is why we're going to see if UX team can do anything about this. I've 
opened a meta bug to track them here 
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=892075

Looking at the Gaia dashboard, there are some locales that are 
behind the rest: https://l10n.mozilla.org/shipping/dashboard?tree=gaia
Those are:
* Serbian (both Cyrillic and Latin)
* Turkish
* Croatian
* Hungarian

We're going to test them knowing that there will be unlocalized strings. 
But please be aware that it's important to get ahead on these localizations really soon, as much as possible.

Concerning the *status of locale testing*:

** COMPLETED: Polish, Czech, Dutch and Russian

** ONGOING: Spanish and pt-BR

** TODO: Greek, Slovak, Romanian, German, Serbian (Cyrillic and Latin), 
Turkish, Croatian, Hungarian

Thanks for your help! :)

Here are the results of l10n testing on v1.1: https://docs.google.com/sprea=
dsheet/ccc?key=3D0AnlMJ1WKyPHzdElZbFBNUlZYdkVuVU01d3hBd3N3UXc#gid=3D31

This last sheet entitled "Bug List" specifies all the bugs we found. If you=
're interested you can also navigate in the other sheets to see what was te=
sted.

Main issue is truncation of text and text overlapping...these issues have a=
ll been listed in this meta bug, as I stated in a previous message: https:/=
/bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3D892075

I'm currently working on laying out all these truncation and overlapping bu=
gs in a spreadsheet, sorting them by component and by locale. I will then r=
each out to localizers asap with this list, in order to see if you can help=
 out with triaging them, by seeing which ones you can find a work around fo=
r (for example, which ones it's possible to find shorter terms for) and whi=
ch ones should definitely be nominated for leo and/or need UX developers' h=
elp. We know this is an annoying experience for localizers and that it's a =
messed up presentation on the device, sorry about that... We are currently =
working on a solution with firefosOS UX team about this. In the meantime, y=
our help will be crucial and greatly appreciated. Hopefully we will find ot=
her solutions very shortly to this!

I'll come back very soon with some guidelines and reach out to you soon abo=
ut this.

Thanks for your help!
