Translation issues - submission numbering

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Translation issues - submission numbering

Postby ramon » Tue Apr 06, 2010 6:30 am

Hello all,

While translating OCS we noticed that the numbering of the submission steps is awkward, as the Confirmation step gets either a 4 or 5, depending on the user skipping the Supplementary Files submission step or not.
In our opinion, even though the step may be skipped, it still exists in the process.
Changing the numbering on the steps just seems confusing.
We have found this happening in the locale/en_US/author.xml file, in the following keys:
Code: Select all
author.submit.step5SkipSupp = Step 4. Confirming the Submission

author.submit.confirmationSkipSupp = 4. Confirmation

We will keep the numbering as if the steps were always permanent, even though they can be skipped, which means we will go 1 thru 5 all the way.
Unless there's a good reason for the change in numbering.

Hi Ramón,

The reason we're re-numbering the steps is not IIRC because the author decides to skip the supplementary files submission step; it's because the Conference Manager can disable that step entirely, meaning that the author will never see it.

Thanks for the clarification.
I don't know OCS that well.
I'll fix the translations right away.
