Hi Leo,

To propose a new locale on Pontoon, you need to contact the Localization drivers aka Mozilla staff who's responsible for localization whose information you can find here.

Localizing a product is a huge commitment. I hope you have started to think about how are you going to complete the project (maybe start a team or look for alternative help from the local community).

I hope this helps.

Hi Leo,

What is your locale? You can go to Pontoon if you want to localize our product.

Hello   Leo,

I addition to Kiki's post :

There are many different languages in your country   (Afghanistan);   unfortunately there is no option to download Firefox in Pashto or Dari,   nor is there a language pack available in those languages.

Should you by any chance speak Hindi or Punjabi :   you could download Firefox in one of those languages, using this link :

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Hindi and Punjabi language packs are availabe here :

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/language-tools/

But these are probably no option for you .....

Thank you for your response. I want to translate Firefox to Pashto and no, I do not speak Hindi or Punjabi... Is there a way I can create a language pack for Pashto?

If these aren't helpful at all:   I'm hoping that Kiki   (or someone else)   will come to your rescue.

Pontoon seems perfect, but there is no Team for Pashto on it. Do you know how to create a new Team on Pontoon? Thank you for your help.

I just found out that Kiki is not at the office right now, but she'll be back tomorrow.

It'll probably take her a while to check all emails etc., so you may have to wait a little longer.

(sorry .... )

I know that it is a lot of work and it is going to take some time but I am fully committed to it. Thank you very much for your help.
