Description

Instantbird is available in 14 languages. mrphs has reported that RTL support is working (unconfirmed whether merged or not). Upstream has also indicated its desire to accept patches here.

We should also discuss the infrastructure we will be using for the translations because Instantbird does not use Transifex.

Not using Transifex means that many of our volunteer translators may not know about the project, or be willing to work on it (if it requires learning a completely new platform). Everything else is currently handled by Transifex, it would be nice if there was some way that this could be as well.

Where are the translations for InstantBird currently stored?

For the record, I've used the official method upstream uses (requested an hg repo for ar locale). That will be hard for everyday translators so I think we should migrate to transifex.

Also, last time I spoke with flo he specifically said to me that we will need to fix RTL because it shouldn't work out-of-the-box. I'll confirm once I build instantbird with my Arabic translations.
