Translations are now provided by BabelZilla. If you want to translate Flashblock into your language, please sign up as a translator at BabelZilla and register yourself as the official Flashblock translator for your language.
- To edit resource files in Mozilla software and extensions, you need
an appropriate editor that supports the following:
- Support UTF-8 file format.
- Option for leaving out Unicode signature, BOM (Byte Order Mark, U+FEFF).
- Support escaped Unicode (\uXXXX). this appears not to be needed with current mozilla/firefox versions.
- You will need to retrieve three files from the flashblock project:
These can be obtained via the CVS Web interface from: http://www.mozdev.org/source/browse/flashblock/source/locale/en-US/flashblock/
- In contents.rdf change all occurences of "en-US" to the appropriate locale code. For example: "la-VA" for Vatican/Latin.
- Edit the other two files and change the english text to the appropriate language.
- Further information on how these files are structured and what you can
and cannot do with these files can be found at these webpages:
E-Mail the translated files to the Flashblock Team
Remember to tell us the name you want to use in the Flashblock translators' credits.
