Mozilla Celtic Languages Localization Meetup, Bangor 6-7/3/15

MozillaThese are my personal impressions from the meetup.

First off, it was fantastic for Mozilla to show their commitment to supporting the localization of their products in such a tangible way. Thanks to Jeff, Francesco and Dwayne for their support and encouragement during these sessions.

Meeting people I’d heard of through websites and e-mail and had admire their contribution and energy is always a pleasure as is meeting people I’d not heard about but had put in large amounts of effort to support their language and the aims of Mozilla. This was a very pleasant experience.

Things that made an impression on me:

The need for information material on paper, leaflets and posters to give out and to place prominent positions at people’s place of work, schools, colleges, etc. In the meantime, I’ve registered for the Mozilla monthly e-mail newsletter to see if there is a source of information I could reuse locally. It’s looking promising…

Vouching is important to Mozilla and Mozillians. If you’re not  a Mozillian and have contributed to Mozilla’s mission, then chase it up! If you’re a Mozillian you need to check where you stand following the recent change in the vouching system, you need at least 3 vouches from fellow Mozillians who have appreciated your work for you to be able to appreciate other people’s work!

Working together, talking together, helping each other out. These were qualities we saw during our two days together. That’s why I’ve set up this website to continue with our co-operation across the Celtic languages and across a wide set of software relevant to our situations. I hope you will find it useful.

  1. Rhos, thanks for setting up this web site! It will be a good place for us to continue the great conversations we began in Bangor last week. Speaking of the Mozillians site, I just created an “l10n:celtic” group (https://mozillians.org/en-US/group/l10nceltic/) that I encourage everyone to join. I’m also happy to vouch for any of the attendees that still need one – just drop me a line.

  2. Hi, thank you for the website, that’s a great idea. I do agree with you about the meeting, being new to the mozilla localizing community, it was a very good way to learn and discover, and way more efficient than emails.
    My mozzilian account is : https://mozillians.org/u/tornoz/ I haven’t been vouched yet, if someone would like to do it.
    I have forked Kevin’s QA project on github, I plan on trying to adapt it for Breton if I have some time. It seems like it could be quite helpful.
