My name is Pramit and I have been working on Pontoon homepage redesign process as part of Google Summer of Code.
We started by conducting a survey and were super excited by the amount of feedback we got. Over 130 Pontoon users chose to participate! The target was to understand how the users felt regarding the homepage and what are the problems we need to tackle in the redesign.
Custom responses were mainly focusing on the problems regarding the navigation. Many people were confused in using Pontoon for the first time and some didn’t understand how to contribute. So the focus narrowed down to make the navigation and path to contribution easy on the homepage.
Based on what we heard from you, we built a wireframe of the new homepage, which we’re now sharing with you for the first time. The following high-level changes have been made:
- The homepage pitches Pontoon as the place to localize Firefox and other Mozilla products.
- The homepage has a clear call to action: to start contributing to Firefox localization.
- The homepage no longer acts as a demo page for in-context localization.
- The homepage shares the main navigation with other pages.
We’d like to hear what you think about it.
Please consider the proposal a wireframe. Which means we out more effort into the overall page structure and content and less into the details like fonts and colors.
