Submission in 2 languages

Are you an Editor, Author, or Journal 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 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.

HI,

Yes, it is possible for an author to submit the metadata for an article in more than one language. In the language section of the Journal Management pages, you must first make sure that the "Forms" and "Submissions" boxes checked for all of the languages you'd like to allow for submissions. If that is completed, when an author submits a manuscript, once they reach Step 3. Entering the Submission's Metadata, they will see a dropdown menu for the language of the metadata they wish to enter. They will have already selected the primary language of the article in Step 1, so that loads as the default for that page. However, after entering the primary language information, they can flip to other languages in the list and enter the translations. If you're asking authors to upload entire manuscript files of translations, I'd suggest instructing them in your author guidelines to upload any translations as supplemental files or including all of the translated versions in the main file document.

All best,
Vanessa Gabler

Hi SkyAn,

Sorry, author names aren't yet supported in multiple languages. We have had a number of feature requests for this and will make the change in the future.

Hi SkyAn,

I'm not sure I understand the question -- could you say in more detail?

I'm talking about making first and last names of authors in several languages. And I think it will be implemented in the next release of OJS

Now I try to change behavior of OJS 2.4.2 — it’s very important for me because our journals published in Russian and in English which uses different alphabets — Cyrillic and Latin respectively.

I added few rows for English data of user:
Code: Select all
INSERT INTO `user_settings` VALUES
( 1, 'en_US', 'first_name',  0, 0, 'Alexander',   'string' ),
( 1, 'en_US', 'middle_name', 0, 0, 'Igorevich',   'string' ),
( 1, 'en_US', 'last_name',   0, 0, 'Sapozhnikov', 'string' );

and for author:
Code: Select all
INSERT INTO `author_settings` VALUES
( 4, 'en_US', 'first_name',  'Mikhail',       'string' ),
( 4, 'en_US', 'middle_name', 'Valeryanovich', 'string' ),
( 4, 'en_US', 'last_name',   'Bulatov',       'string' );

Is tables user_settings and author_settings the proper place for name storing?

Hi shoorick,

That data is stored in the "authors" table, each with its own column (first_name, middle_name, last_name); in order to make this data multilingual-capable you'll need to modify the schema, AuthorDAO.inc.php, Author.inc.php, and a number of forms and support classes first.

Hi Alec

Yes, I saw these columns (first_name, middle_name, last_name) in author table and I understand I need to modify Author*.php.

But why I need to change schema? May be better is remain fields author.first_name, middle_name, last_name for compatibility? These fields remains but sometimes (in language-specific pages and forms) their values will be ignored.

I already did input data and did change some files — you can see changes at github:

Now localized several pages: Current issue, Article, Author index, Title index, and Search.

Couple of screenshots attached — you can compare how same page looks in different languages:

authors-ru.png
Author index in Russian
authors-ru.png (18.98 KiB) Viewed 1321 times


authors-en.png
Author index in English
authors-en.png (15.5 KiB) Viewed 1321 times


Forms does not work now, but I hope I will make required changes in a week.

Hi shoorick,

Looks good! There's a bugzilla entry open for this already, by the way, with some partial code in case it proves useful.

Sorry, I can’t give access to site with localized OJS right now — I prefer to keep it closed from visitors when I debug code.
You will see how run localized OJS not later than Dec. 9 — we will open it at http://vestnik.susu.ac.ru/ for serving 16 scientific journals — series of “Vestnik Yuzhno-Uralskogo gosudarstvennogo universiteta” (Bulletin of South Ural State University). And may be some OJS based journals will open at http://journals.susu.ac.ru/. Stay tuned! :)

Hi shoorick,

Sure, that makes sense. I forgot to include a link to the bug in my last post -- it's http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=8418.
