Translation workflow management

Postby dcormier » Thu Dec 12, 2013 3:54 pm


I was wondering if it was possible to manage the translation workflow from inside the journal translation interface.

Basically I would like to setup a translator role for my journal, and let these translators submit translation for issue articles. Those translations would then be sent in a review process for approval, just like the original article.

I have looked at the documentation and tried it on a local OJS install, but it seems like there is currently no such feature.

Thank you very much for your time.

Hi David,

By 'journal translation interface', are you referring to the toolset provided for translating the OJS interface itself into other languages? If so, that probably won't work. That system is designed to work with our locale files and probably won't deal well with articles. Right now, translations are handled as galley files. In the next version of OJS, translating articles will be made much more clear. The new article galley system is quite improved.
