Welcome to the Rust Pontoon

Pontoon is a translation management system used and developed by the Mozilla localization community. It specializes in open source localization that is driven by the community and uses version-control systems for storing translations. The Rust project is using Pontoon to translate its website.

This is how it works.

Pontoon is a simple and intuitive tool that requires little technical skills to use it. Each language has its own team of localizers. Join one, find a project you'd like to contribute to, and you're ready to start contributing!

  1. Pick your team and project
  2. Submit a suggestion
  3. Have it approved by a trusted localizer
