Re: Revive Belarusian community


Hi Hanna,
this is great news. There's already at least one person who was 
interested in contributing (meequz)!msg/

Translation is currently available through Pontoon

The first projects to localize in order of priority would definitely be 
Firefox (desktop, android), and (I need to restore the 
previous content before exposing the project on Pontoon).

I think the first step would be to create an account on Pontoon and get 
in touch with :meequz to see how to organize the work.

As a new user you would only be able to submit suggestion, so I will 
need to upgrade your permissions to be able to submit translations and 
manage other users.
