List of MX-15 Manual translations

#1 Post by Jerry3904 » Sun Jan 10, 2016 10:08 am

In this thread I would like to keep track of translations that have been completed for at least Sections 1 and 3. I have changed the Manuals tab to point to a Translations page that lists available translations populated from posts on this thread.

(Probably going to have to change some of the other links pointing directly to the English Manual...)

BTW: some of our users may even want to produce a British English version to get rid of those Americanisms!

A full Russian translation is now available by clicking the Manuals tab > MX-15 > Other languages: see <this page>.

:cool2: :cool2:

Many thanks to bicyclist56!

NOTE: this text is in html, so we may end up with a mixture of html and pdf files--we'll just have to see how it shakes out. Going to put any decision off for a while here.

I found that in the Table of Contents links lead to the English version! We had to fix all of these references.
For example, instead:
mepiscommunity.org/user_manual_mx15/mxum.html#toc-Subsection-1.6
should be:
mepiscommunity.org/user_manual_mx15/Translations/mx15_Russian.html#toc-Subsection-1.6

OK, uploaded the replacement file.

Hadn't thought about that yet, so thanks! We will have to figure out how to deal with that with future translations--it may be manual change is the only way, since a search/replace won't touch the links AFAIK. Need to do some web searching...

A minute later:
1) I can just open an html file in Leafpad and do the search/replace there.
2) Before we create a PDF in LO, we can follow the approach here, which uses the xml file itself.

Have created a draft pdf and found that problem with the TOC links. May have found another work-around that does not need a manual
replace. Will advise you of results later in the day. There is the fact that all the links ( Help etc) in the translated manual will link to the
original English language data.

I avoided internal links (cross refs) so I hope there won't be any.

The anual method is a single click search/replace, so not much effort.

Chores for next few hours - but working with the translated Russian html, if I click on a link in the ToC, up comes the full manual again,
then click on a ToC link and it works correctly. Now to see if this behaviour is retained in the conversion to LO. Later today.


Edit: two hours later - no, it does not retain link info in LO conversion.

I'm confused :confused: , which is nothing unusual.

Using Leafpad to view the html files; in the original English file, the ToC linking instructions are obvious and as expected. In the Russian
translation, there seem to be no ToC links.

In a Libre Office copy of the Russian Manual, the ToC link for 1.1 is this (see Screenshot) but a Ctrl/Click links back to the full Russian html
file - and the other ToC sections do the same.

But now:
Page not found

We have forgotten to change the name in English? :(

Yes, of course, it has already been translated. Thank you.
