AMO localization - how to localize categories

if you open

https://addons.allizom.org/sl/firefox/?browse=featured

you'll notice that the top 70% of categories in the left/hand side
column (Alerts & Updates and on down all the way to Other) have not
been localized. This is of course the first thing that hits the eyes
of a visitor, making him wonder about visual and intellectual
capabilities of people doing the localization.

I have just looked once  more time into the repository and I cant find
any strings like these. Could it be it is some hard-coded stuff (tags
maybe?).

Any explanation and suggestion how to deal with this awkward problem
will be welcome.

Regards

I recently started to localise AMO, and discovered the same thing as my
first translation was deployed. Apparently there is something called a
Localizer Tool with which you can translate these things inside AMO
itself. I guess that is because the categories are dynamic and created
independently of the web application.

To be able to localise these, you have to be added to the team for your
language, and your language must be enabled (one of these might already
be done for you, but wasn't in my case).

I was encouraged to file a bug:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=668170

I hope that saves you some time :-)

How to image local-to-local
I tried using a couple different Cool Tip articles about zen imaging to USB drives, but am still having problems. I want to store the c:\ drive onto a different partition on the same hard drive. Here's the scenario: 40Gig drive: 20Gig windows partition 10Gig ext2-formatted partition (10gig unused) I mounted the 10Gig partition, then went into the IMG tool and tried to save the c:\drive image to it but it bombs out almost immediately with "Out of space on destination", even though I know that the resulting zmg file will be far less than 10Gig. Please tell me ...

[AMO] Localizing category names works again
Good news! Rob Hudson migrated the category localization pages from PHP to Python last week. They are currently being tested on the -dev site but I plan to push them to the live site next week unless we encounter troubles (live means, removing the /z/ prefix in the URL). The top level page can be tested at: > https://addons-dev.allizom.org/z/en-US/localizers/ If you click on your locale and then look on the left there is a "Categories" link option which will allow you to localize categories. An example URL: > https://addons-dev.allizom.org/z/en-US/localize...

English locale in the localized versions
Hello, It would be very nice if all versions of Firefox would also include the English locale and an easy way to switch to it. Not everyone likes their software not being in English, and the auto-detection feature of the download page makes it easy to get a localized version by mistake. I've ran into this problem several times while setting up friends' PCs, and having to reinstall Firefox was annoying. I realize that adding all locales like, say, Opera does would more than double the installer size, but the English locale alone is small, and the changes required would be t...

Local
Hi, This is really 2 questions in one. 1. If we are running transactions using the shared tx co-ordinator model all dbase calls should be made over 1 Connection Cache. Does this mean all the components that are used on a tx must run on the same box. 2. If this is correct, how can we ensure that all calls are made on the local box, in a clustered environment? ----------------------------------------- We are wish to run a cluster which guarantees to run components on the local box only. We need to do this (I think) for the following reasons. There are 3 types of...

CalendarExtender localization without -Localization- attribute
hi..asp.net 2.0I dont want to enable the "Localization" or "Globalization" attributes of ScriptManager element, since they cause more JS codes in compiled html and it causes more bandwith.But i can't use the CalendarExtender without those attributes. I use my web application in TR-tr culture. So, i had to write an extra function to convert the date formats, but i dont want to write an extra function, too..I use the CalendarExtender only in one web form page, browse.aspx... But my ScriptManager is in the MasterPage.. So i can not use another script manager for this ca...
