Is Atlas Tamazight written in Tifinagh or Latin? If you are using Latin script, you can copy and modify Kabyle Localization

Hello Hakim, and thanks for reaching out about localizing Mozilla products.
Would you like to start out with Firefox for Android?
It’s a relatively small project still, so would be good to start out with that.
Let me know and I’d be happy to help.
Thanks!

welcome to our brothers, the iso code of Tamazight of the atlas is “tzm” and standard Moroccan Tamazight is “zgh”, but they have the same native name “native name” which is "Tamazight, it will generate some bugs and worries in future projects,

How would you suggest we rename both to avoid this confusion down the road (and possible issues)?

Hello @delphine, yes the official name is : Central Atlas Tamazight. And i suggest @hakim.oubouali.skr to be a manager of this language, we are going to help him to understand pontoon. I am a manager for kabyle locale.

Thanks so much @slimane.amiri! and I have added @hakim.oubouali.skr as manager.
So I will call it Central Atals Tamazight in Pontoon.
But should I aslo rename in Pontoon “the other” Tamazight?

Thank you very much @delphine, the other Tamazight is officially called “Standard Moroccan Tamazight”, but I think we should first descuss with the manager of this language on pontoon who is also a friend.

Ok, I have updated the “tzm” locale code name: https://pontoon.mozilla.org/tzm/
@slimane.amiri: should we reach out to him here, or would you like to get in contact another way?

@delphine I’ve been talking to the zgh manager on pontoon, he prefers to keep the name Tamazight for zgh as long as tzm has a different name now.
