This is a good follow-up to a conversation Mavis + Ali + I had last week on starting to make the main MP site localized for different communities (bug = https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1015477 ). 

We have had community and partners express interest in doing translation events on some of the teaching kits, the MP site and others. The MP team can put together a quick teaching kit (if anyone wants to help let us know!) and we can flush out the ask/incentives.

"Mom, what do you think of this?" around the kitchen table, with the xx-YY version of Webmaker on the screen. Having a way for people to bring back local and locale-aware knowledge and tell us what is wrong or odd would be great. 

+1 

Even back when I worked on Thunderbird I was struck by how even localizers didn’t feel they could say things like “hey, this feature can't work in my language”.
