8# This is the main macro file for translation when creating an
9# interface in another language.
10
11# Under the 'text macros' comments are text macros of the form:
12# _macroname_ {macro value}
13# Everything between the {} is the text to be translated. This text
14# may itself contain macros (i.e. characters other than space between
15# underscore characters, e.g. _about:numdocs_ or _textpage_). These
16# macro names occurring within text shouldn't be translated but should
17# be left as they are. Underscores or curly brackets occurring
18# naturally within the text should be escaped with a leading backslash
19# (i.e. '\_', '\{' or '\}).
20#
21# Comment lines (other than those described above) need not be
22# translated (i.e. any lines beginning with '#', like this line).
23#
24# The simplest way to translate this file is to save it as something
25# else (e.g. french.dm) and work through translating all the text
26# macro values and icon comments.

618<p>You can tell when you have arrived at an individual book or document
619because its title, or an image of the front cover, appears at the top
620left of the page. In some collections, a table of contents appears, while in others
621(eg. when the paged image option is used)
622just the page number is shown, along with a box that allows you to select a
623new page and go forward and backward. In the table of contents, the current
624section heading is in bold face, and the table is expandable -- click on the folders
625to open or close them; click on the open book at the top to close it.</p>
626
627<p>Underneath is the text of the current section. When you have read
628through it, there are arrows at the bottom to take you on to the next
629section or back to the previous one.</p>
630
631<p>Below the title or front-cover image are some buttons. Click on
632<i>_document:textEXPANDTEXT_</i> to expand out the whole text of the current section, or
633book. If the document is large, this could take a long time and use a lot
634of memory! Click on <i>_document:textEXPANDCONTENTS_</i> to expand out the whole table of
635contents so that you can see the titles of all chapters and
636subsections. Click on <i>_document:textDETACH_</i> to make a new browser window for this
637document. (This is useful if you want to compare documents, or read two at
638once.) Finally, when you do a search the words you search for are
639highlighted. Click on <i>_document:textNOHIGHLIGHT_</i> to remove highlighting.</p>

659  <ol><li>Specify what items you want to search
660      <li>Say whether you want to search for all or just some of the words

667there you will find buttons to take you on to the third twenty or back to the
668first twenty, and so on.  Click the title of any document, or the little button
669beside it, to see it.
670
671<p>A maximum of 50 is imposed on the number of
672  documents returned.  You can change this number by clicking the
673  <i>_Global:linktextPREFERENCES_</i> button at the top of the page.<p>
674}
675
676_texthelpquerytermstitle_ {Search terms}
677_texthelpqueryterms_ {
678<p>Whatever you type into the query box is interpreted as a list of words or phrases
679called "search terms."  A term is a single word containing only letters and digits, or a phrase consisting of a sequence of words enclosed in double quotes ("...").  Terms are separated by white spaces.  If any other characters such
680as punctuation appear, they serve to separate terms just as though they were
681spaces.  And then they are ignored.  You can't search for words that include
682punctuation.
683
684<p>For example, the query<p>
685    <ul><kbd>Agro-forestry in the Pacific Islands: Systems for Sustainability (1993)</kbd></ul>
686      <p>will be treated the same as<p>
687      <ul><kbd>Agro forestry in the Pacific Islands  Systems for Sustainability  1993 </kbd></ul><p>

691For collections built with MGPP a few other options are available.
692
693<ul>
694<li>A <b>*</b> at the end of a query term  matches all words <b>starting with</b> that word, e.g. <b>comput*</b> matches all words starting with <b>comput</b>.
695<li><b>/x</b> can be used to give higher weight to one or more of the query terms, eg <b>computer/10 science</b> gives computer 10 times more weight than science when ranking documents.
696</ul>
697}
698
699_texthelplucenesearching_ {
700For collections built with Lucene a few other options are available.
701
702<ul>
703<li><b>?</b> can be used as a wildcard in place of a single letter. For example, <b>b?t</b> will match  <b>bet</b>, <b>bit</b> and <b>bat</b> etc.
704<li><b>*</b> can be used as a wildcard in place of multiple letters. For example, <b>comput*</b> matches all words starting with <b>comput</b>.
705</ul>
706Both of these wildcards can be used in the middle of a term, or at the end. They cannot be used at the start of a search term.
707}
708
709_texthelpquerytypetitle_ {Query type}
710_texthelpquerytype_ {
711<p>There are two different kinds of query.
712
713<ul>
714  <li>Queries for <b>all</b> of the words.  These look for documents (or
715      chapters, or titles) that contain all the words you have specified.
716      Documents that satisfy the query are displayed, in build order.
717<p>
718
719  <li>Queries for <b>some</b> of the words.  Just list some terms that are
720      likely to appear in the documents you are looking for.  Documents are
721      displayed in order of how closely they match the query.  When determining
722      the degree of match,
723
724      <p><ul>
725        <li> the more search term occurrences a document contains, the closer it matches;
726        <li> terms which are rare in the collection as a whole are more important than common ones;
727        <li> short documents match better than long ones.
728      </ul>
729</ul>
730
731<p>Use as many search terms as you like--a whole sentence, or even a
732whole paragraph.  If you specify only
733one term, documents will be ordered by its frequency of occurrence.<p>
734}
735
736_texthelpadvancedsearchtitle_ {Advanced searching using the _1_ search engine}
737
738_texthelpadvancedsearch_ {
739<p>If you have selected advanced query mode (in preferences) you have slightly different search options.
740}
741
742_texthelpadvsearchmg_ {
743Advanced searching in MG collections gives you two options, ranked and boolean.
744A <b>ranked</b> search is exactly the same as the <b>some</b> search descibed in <a href="\#query-type">_texthelpquerytypetitle_</a>.
745<p>_texthelpbooleansearch_
746}
747
748_texthelpbooleansearch_ {
749A <b>boolean</b> search allows you to combine terms
750using &amp; (for "and"), | (for "or"), and ! (for "not"), using parentheses for grouping if desired. The default operator is | (for "or").
751<p>
752For example, <b>snail &amp; farming</b> will match documents which contain both <b>snail</b> AND <b>farming</b>, whereas <b>snail | farming</b> will match documents that contain either <b>snail</b> OR <b>farming</b>.
753<b>snail !farming</b> will match documents that contain <b>snail</b> AND DO NOT contain <b>farming</b>.
754<p>
755More precise queries can be specified using combinations of operators and parentheses. For example, <b>(sheep | cattle) &amp; (farm | station)</b>, or <b>sheep | cattle | goat !pig</b>.
756}
757
758_texthelpadvsearchmgpp_ {
759Advanced searches in MGPP collections use boolean operators. _texthelpbooleansearch_
760<p>The results can be displayed in <b>ranked</b> order, as described for the <b>some</b> search in <a href="\#query-type">_texthelpquerytypetitle_</a>, or in "natural" (or "build") order. The latter is the order that documents were processed during the creation of the collection.
761<p>
762Further operators include <b>NEARx</b> and <b>WITHINx</b>.
763NEARx is used to specify the maximum distance (x words)
764which can separate two query terms for a document to match.
765WITHINx specifies that the second term must occur within x words <i>after</i> the first term. This is similar to NEAR but the order is important. The default distance is 20.
766}
767
768_texthelpadvancedsearchextra_{NOTE: These operators are all ignored if you are searching in simple query mode.}
769
770_texthelpadvsearchlucene_ {
771Advanced searches in Lucene collections use boolean operators. _texthelpbooleansearch_
772}
773
774_texthelpformsearchtitle_ {Fielded searching}
775
776_texthelpformsearch_ {
777<p>Fielded searching provides the opportunity to combine searches across fields. For example, one can search for "Smith" in Title AND "snail farming" in Subject. In simple query mode, each line of the form behaves like a normal single line search. The individual lines of the form are combined using AND (for an "all" search) or OR (for a "some" search). Terms inside the field are also combined the same way. In advanced mode, you can specify different combinations of AND/OR/NOT between the fields using the drop-down lists, and inside a field you can use boolean operators.
778}
779
780_texthelpformstemming_ {The "fold" and "stem" boxes allow you to specify whether the terms inside that field are casefolded or stemmed. These are both switched off by default for advanced form searching.}
781
782_textdatesearch_ {Searching with Dates}
783
784_texthelpdatesearch_ {
785Date search lets you find documents that, as well as matching your search
786terms, are about events within a certain timeframe.  You can search for
787documents from a certain year or from a range of years.  Note that you do not
788have to have any search terms -- you can search by date alone; and also that
789you do not have to use dates in your search, if you do not type any dates in it
790 is just the same as if the date search didn't exist.<p>

816
817_texthelpdateresultstitle_ {The way results of your search work}
818_texthelpdateresults_ {
819Generally speaking a search for documents about the year 1903 will not return documents that, say, reference books written in 1903, just documents about 1903.  However, the way that the documents' dates are found, it will return documents that have a date range (for example 1899-1911) that includes 1903, and also those documents which, as part of their text name the century that 1903 is a part of (for example 20th century or twentieth century).  This means that for some documents, the dates in your search will not actually appear in the document text.  For a range search, all of this applies to every date in the range.<p>

840used by Greenstone for output to the browser -- the software chooses
841sensible defaults, but with some browsers it may be necessary to switch to
842a different encoding scheme to ensure correct character display.
843All collections allow you to
844switch from the standard graphical interface format to a textual one. This
845is particularly useful for visually impaired users who use large screen
846fonts or speech synthesizers for output.
847}
848
849_texthelppresentationprefstitle_ {Presentation preferences}
850_texthelppresentationprefs_ {
851Depending on the particular collection, there may be several options you can
852set that control the presentation.
853
854<p>Collections of Web pages allow you to suppress the Greenstone navigation bar at
855the top of each document page, so that once you have done a search you land at
856the exact Web page that matches without any Greenstone header.  To do another
857search you will have to use your browser's "back" button.  These collections
858also allow you to suppress Greenstone's warning message when you click a link
859that takes you out of the digital library collection and on to the Web itself.
860And in some Web collections you can control whether the links on the search
861results page take you straight to the actual URL in question, rather than to
862the digital library's copy of the page.
