Description (last modified by sebastian)


The build targets chrome, gecko-webext and edge only include translations for languages supported by Chrome. There are plenty of languages supported by Firefox that aren't included in that subset.

Moreover, Firefox and Microsoft Edge differentiate between es-MX (Mexico), es-AR (Argentinia) and es-CL (Chile), while Chrome combines these dialects of Spanish under es-419. But since Firefox and Microsoft Edge don't recognize es-419, they instead fall back to es (i.e. Spanish as spoken in Spain).

What to change

  • Add missing target languages, supported by Firefox, to the translation project on Crowdin.
  • Update langMappingChrome accordingly to account for the new languages, removing unnecessary region suffixes for languages we only translate one dialect of.
  • Remove the mapping for es-419 from langMappingChrome, so that es-MX is imported/exported unchanged. But instead convert it to es-419 only when building for the chrome target.
