Add Chinese as a supported language for translations in Firefox.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
it is a good ideal
Does this mean Chinese is coming because a employee said it?
@Jeppie These were moved over from GitHub. It means we want Connect to be the place where users can voice their support (and vote) for a given language. So keep on voting and sharing your thoughts. Thanks 🙌
Due to the existence of The Great Firewall, users in China cannot access various translation APIs stably, so it would be very helpful to support Chinese in local translation.
That's good, support Chinese means quite a lot of user can enjoy this untracked offline translation while browsing the Internet. (Chinese is indeed a language with a lot of speakers)
However, had Mozilla already distinguished the Simplified variant and Traditional one? Maybe those 2 kinds of Chinese should offered separately.
BTW, @Jeppie , this connect thread was converted from https://github.com/mozilla/firefox-translations/issues/583, and that issue was opened by a Firefox user.
Chinese is the language with the largest number of native speakers in the world, I believe adding Chinese as a supported language for translations in Firefox could bring enormous convenience to Chinese-speaking users.
This thing still needs to be voted on? . . Although that may be impulsive. But if even 1/5 of the languages in the world are not supported. This translation is incomplete.
I hope Firefox could include Traditional and Simplified Chinese as 2 different languages because they are quite different. Thank you!🙏
