Transvision is a Web application targeting the Mozilla localization community, created and maintained by the French Mozilla community (http://www.mozfr.org).
The main purpose of Transvision is to provide a specialized search engine to find localized strings in Mozilla code repositories for all Mozilla products (Firefox, Thunderbird, Firefox OS, Seamonkey…) and websites (currenty only www.mozilla.org is supported) via a Web interface. There are also side-features such as checks for common typographical errors for some languages, validity checks for localized access keys in the UI, or comparison views between Mozilla repository channels (Nightly/Aurora/Beta/Release).
Transvision is written in PHP, the string extraction is done with the Silme library (Python) and server install/maintenance scripts are in Bash.
Transvision is available at: http://transvision.mozfr.org
Transvision Beta is available at: http://transvision-beta.mozfr.org
