Multiple language versions of content

Postby Grif » Mon Oct 16, 2006 11:43 pm

I have a journal manager who wants to publish multiple language versions of actual content, i.e. editorials, abstracts and articles in 2 or 3 different languages. Can you tell me what is the best way to do this?

Hi Helen,

We're improving our support of miltilingual content for our next release. In the meantime, article titles and abstracts can be entered in up to three languages. OJS users have used several methods to support bilingual or multilingual articles -- some have created two journals in the same OJS installation, one for each language; alternately, you can label galleys with the language rather than the format (e.g. English vs. French instead of HTML vs. PDF).
