Can the legal agreement be translated?

Alexandru Szasz
Hi,

Is there a way that the legal agreement shown at installation can be
translated ?
It feels weird to say to the user in romanian to read it in english.

Sadly, translating legal documents has legal constraints that we're not
able to fulfil with volunteer translators. So, sadly, not.

There have been a few documents that we got translated by translation
services and review by our contributors, but I don't recall right now
which, and how.

Alexandru,

You can go ahead and take a shot at translating the end user license,  attach the draft to a bug, and add a dependence to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=357710

If we can find legal resources to review the translation and approve we can check in the strings and add it to the approved list of EULAs on the website.

Thanks

Chris Hofmann

As I know, there are already translated EULA document for major locales.
If possible, it's good for them to be included in localized versions.
