Please translate unity launcher quicklist entry 'Open a new tab' for firefox

Asked by Bilal Akhtar on 2011-03-23

The following change to the Firefox desktop files will be pushed to the Natty repositories:
--- firefox-4.0~rc2+build3+nobinonly/debian/
+++ firefox-4.0~rc2+build3+nobinonly/debian/
@@ -90,0 +91,7 @@
+[NewTab Shortcut Group]
+Name=Open a new tab
+Exec=@APPNAME@ -new-tab about:blank

This change adds an option 'Open a new tab' to the Unity firefox icon launcher's right-click menu . It would be good if the text 'Open a new tab' was translated.

Hence, kindly set up translations for the same. Thanks!

Hi Bilal,

Thanks for working on this!

A couple of things:

1) "Name=Open a new tab" might need to be changed to "_Name=Open a new tab" to be marked for translation, although I'm not sure it is necessary in this particular case, as we'd probably add the translations manually?

2) Would "Open a new tab" not need to be capitalized to "Open a New Tab" as the other entries?

I've added the message to and I'll announce it to translators as soon as you give me the go.

Thanks David for the suggestions, suggestion 1 isn't needed here, since we have to add translations manually. Moreover, Name: is written in the main part of the desktop files, not _Name.

I've modified the debdiff according to suggestion 2. I have also made the required change on the Wiki page.

Thanks a lot for your help! Yes, please go ahead with the announcement to the translators.

Thanks again.
