Things you can do include:
- Translate flyers
- Help translate the Mozilla Europe pages (see also Mozilla Europe’s wiki)
- Help translate applications from the Mozilla Foundation (this isn’t usually done by a single person)
- Just give your opinion to the translators
You can also give the localization teams a hand. Learn more at the Mozilla localization project page.
The latest info re the full-page ad in the New York Times is that it’s planned to be published during the first half of December, according to a post on the Spread Firefox site.
So here’s another way you can help spread the word – write a short quote that may be used in the NY Times ad. What Firefox is looking for is this:
While you can tell your story in as many words as you want in the story forum, what we really need are short quips that sum up why someone else should switch to Firefox. These quotes may end up being used in the New York Times ad or elsewhere, so they need to be short and sweet and have as little geekspeak as possible! (In fact, listen to this NPR piece to get a sense of how we should be talking to our audience.)
These guys are doing a terrific marketing job (and maybe this is a good example that highlights why traditional marketing is in trouble – see my post on 18 November) and let’s help them all we can.
