As the web grows and becomes more dynamic, Mozilla seeks to uphold the standards and practices that keep it open for all.
The key to that is to break the paradigm that linguistically ties translations to a source string. That paradigm, which is fundamental to almost all localization technologies used on the Web today, is becoming more limiting than ever, especially with the rise of responsive user interfaces.
Based on 15 years of experience in building open source software, localized into over 90 locales, Mozilla came up with a new localization framework that shifts this paradigm, called L20n. L20n isolates localizations and enables translators to provide naturally expressive translations for even the most complex user interfaces.
Mozilla is investing in moving its products - Firefox, Firefox OS, and Firefox for Android - to this new architecture. At this talk you'll get a chance to see what L20n brings to the table.
