Mozilla localizations

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Mozilla localizations are localized versions of Mozilla products. This usually entails that a product has been both translated into a certain language and that language and region specific features have been added.

Localization is normally carried out by teams of volunteers.

Mozilla Firefox[edit]

Mozilla Firefox is the most heavily localized cross-platform web browser to date.[1] The first official release in November 2004 was available for 28 different locales including British English/American English, European Spanish/Argentine Spanish and Chinese in Traditional Chinese characters/Simplified Chinese characters. Firefox 4 initially shipped with over 80 locales and introduced 10 new locales, including 6 African languages.[2]

The following table lists releases of Firefox and its precursors for the Microsoft Windows operating system, listing all locales available at the end of each version's releases.[2]
