Ola Fran,

I think this is a bug in the upload form, since I don't think uploading
the Firefox translations exported from Launchpad is supported. I've
filed this bug [1] for that.

What you are trying to achieve is doable, but might require some manual
work. Do you think you could file a support request at 


So we can give you a hand on this?

This will be helpful for everyone as well, as it will help us in
documenting the process on how to do this.
