Bug Description

Currently unity-firefox-extension is only set up for translations in the upstream project [1]

It needs to also be set up for translations in the source package [2] as any other Ubuntu translatable package. Not being there means there is no visibility from translators. Ubuntu Translators do their work on https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/quantal rather than on every separate project (*)

Right now, due to this reduced visibility it is only fully translated into one language and partially into 2 other. I didn't even know it existed.

So please, ensure that the package creates a .pot file during the build (e.g. with dh-translations), so that translations can be imported and exposed into Launchpad. In terms of shipping the translations, I haven't looked at the code, but I'm guessing that it being a Mozilla extension, we'll need to manually merge them in the package. Otherwise, we can just export them in the language packs.

Let me know if I can help in anything.

[2] https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/quantal/+source/unity-firefox-extension

(*) Admittedly some teams do translate projects upstream, but it is pretty difficult to keep track of individual upstreams unless they are part of a big project (e.g. GNOME)
