Author names in two languages

Postby besmobile » Tue Oct 06, 2009 5:48 am

Hi,

I adjust a site for display in two languages. Is it possibille to make so that in the table of contents for the issue not only article title and abstract was displayed in two languages, but authors also?

Hi besmobile,

Not currently, no -- author names are currently only inputted in one language, although this may change in the future.

Cheers,
James

Hi James,

This would be a great feature for the journals with non-latin alphabet!

Hi folks,

Thanks for the input -- it's appreciated! Before I report the bug, are there any other fields that users have requested be made multilingual that we might be missing? I'll include any you name in the report.

Cheers,
James

I am supporting this question. For our journal http://journal.iitta.gov.ua need input author and editor name on the two language.

Could somebody propose any suggestions for now? How to solve the problem with citation? I mean how to cope with that using existing opportunities? Create one more (mirror) issue or even journal? Thank you.

Hi smoro,

That bug I originally posted has been marked as a duplicate of http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=5598, which should hopefully see a patch soon. I would recommend CCing yourself to bug 5598 so that you are notified of future updates.

Cheers,
James
