Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OJS from an everyday user's perspective: journal managers, authors, and editors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OJS 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 OJS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OJS 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 OJS 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 OJS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

2 questions: Abstract | generate HTML

1) Imagin you have your OJS installe in just one language: is there an easy way to only have the field "abstract" duplicated in order to provide the text in more languages?

2) Can someone recommend a tool to generate a html file from MS Word that can be uploaded to OJS?

OJS is set up so that when you have multiple languages enabled, you can enter translated metadata for each enabled language by toggling back and forth the "form" language on the metadata page to enter each version. However, it's not set up to do this for languages not enabled on an installation. So, if you only have the English language interface enabled, you only have access to one version of each metadata field (so if you only have one language enabled, you can only enter one language version of the Abstract). The only easy "workaround" would be to enter the multiple versions in a series in the one available free form field for Abstract one after the other, which might prove to be a metadata problem.

I'm not aware of an Open Source tools for generating html from a Word document. PKP's Lemon8-XML generator is still in development. There are professional organizations that generate XML and HTML from Word or PDF documents for a fee per document. The Data Conversion Laboratory charges $2.75 per page with an additional fee of $0.75 per image. I'm not aware of the costs for other companies providing this service.

All best,
