Re: Mozilla Translation Quality Test Project


Hi everyone!

There's still time for more Mozillians to get involved in this project. 
Please reach out to all of the Spanish speaking Mozillians you can and 
invite them to register here . We're 
looking for Mozillians who have either already participated in a 
translation quality evaluation, have been involved with localizing 
Mozilla projects, or are actively using Firefox on a pre-release channel 
(Nightly, Aurora, or Beta) in Spanish.

Thanks for your help!
