For over a month I am running a project on mozdev.org called "polmoz" (http://polmoz.mozdev.org). Its aim is to translate some Mozilla documentation into Polish.

I have already translated Mozilla 1.0 startpages (these: http://www.mozilla.org/start/1.0 ). I've e-mailed webmaster@mozilla.org two times about my translation (cause I wanted the original version to have a link to the Polish one, as it does with the French one), but got no response, and people running Mozilla 1.0 in Poland do not know that they can read that thing in their own language, because going to mozilla.org/start/1.0 gives them only "French" and "English" to chose from.

However, the French translation (at mozfr.mozdev.org) already links to my one (thanks!), so if a Polish Mozilla user clicks "French", then he/she will find a link to "Polski". But in Poland the most used foreign languages are English, German and Russian, so the chances are weak.

Well, I'd like to ask you what to do? Submit a bug to Bugzilla about that? Keep emailing webmaster@mozilla.org? (uhh, I guess he won't like that ;))

My translation of Mozilla 1.0 startpage can be found at http://polmoz.mozdev.org/start/1.0/

Um.. I dunno what to do, I'm sure somebody who maintains mozillazine and mozilla will see your post and make an attempt to get the link up.

Thanks for going through the work of translating.

*hugs*

I've heard that Gerv is responsible for the Start Page. Try emailing him at gerv@mozilla.org.

I'd also like to say "thanks" for the translation... even though I can't read a workd of Polish myself :)

There is a partial Polish translation of PluginDoc that you can link to, although it does need work done to it.

Gerv has added the link to the original website. So I'm happy now. :)
