Dear translators,
the Websites team has completed the migration of all web sources to the new
translation platform and you can access the Websites Project from the
following link, to get familiar with it:

This doesn't mean we have switched completely to Zanata, but Transifex
won't get any updated source file from now on. The goal is to make the
switch as smooth as possible for you.
Actually we have 2 branches we are working on:

1) Production (master)
We still pull translations automatically from Transifex, but in about 10-12
days we will freeze translations and close all source files, making them
So, if you have some smaller fixes you can still use TX (until we freeze
If you want to translate more pages you 'should' use Zanata, but you won't
see your translations in production until Fedora 22 Alpha release date.

2) Fedora 22 Alpha branch (staging)
Actually we are working on prerelease pages in getfedora.org and spins.fpo.
Both source files are being pushed ONLY to Zanata and we pull translations
manually until F22 Alpha release.
Any translation for Alpha therefore MUST be translated on Zanata.
We are going to build Alpha pages in staging ASAP, so you can have a look
where the new strings are and in which context.

If you don't know exactly where to translate the strings in this period,
I'd advice you to work only on Zanata. There are some strings which
unfortunately we were not able to merge correctly, so please have a look
and eventually copy and paste them from TX if you already did those strings.
Finally I think the earlier you get comfortable with Zanata the better, so
this is a good moment to do so, as we are about 3 weeks away from Alpha
release and didn't hit any freeze for now.

I hope the plan will work as expected, if you have any specific questions
about this workflow or something is not clear to you, just ping me on
Thank you for your help and happy translating to all!

Robert Mayr
