Yet Another Translation Question

Postby spatialguru » Thu Nov 13, 2008 11:41 am

Sorry, I assume this is a straight forward question, but I can't find a clear answer. We are publishing an English and a translation version in French as well. So far we've published it as a separate issue, e.g. see volume 1 here: http://www.osgeo.org/ojs/index.php/jour ... ue/archive

Is there any activity to allow a set of different issues/articles available in multiple languages?
Here is how we've handled it recently:
http://www.osgeo.org/journal/volume3 - urls to english versions plus an url to french.

Any pointers other than handling them as two different issues?

Hope it makes sense ;)

Hi Tyler,

OJS is fully multilingual -- you can upload galley files in both languages, and links to the correct file will appear on the website depending on which language the user is browsing under. For example, when you are viewing a submission's Editing page, you should be able to switch between form locales near the top (if you have more than one language installed for your journal). Upload your English galley file(s), and then switch locales, subsequently uploading for French. Once this submission is published, users will see links to the English version when browsing in English, and French while browsing in French.

Cheers,
James
