47_t2_ {
48Greenstone is a suite of software for building and distributing digital
49library collections. It provides a new way of organizing information and
50publishing it on the Internet or on CD-ROM. Greenstone is produced by the
51<b>New Zealand Digital Library Project</b> at the <b>University of
52Waikato</b>, and developed and distributed in cooperation with
53<b>UNESCO</b> and the <b>Human Info NGO</b>. It is <b>open-source,
54multilingual</b> software, issued under the terms of the GNU General Public
55License. Read the <a href="_httppagex_(factsheet)">Greenstone Fact Sheet</a> for more information.

In future, odd version numbers indicate unstable releases and even numbers stable ones. This release includes many bug fixes and improvements as well as several major additions, including: enhanced PDF, PPT and Word plugins; new RealMedia plugin; new GenericList classifier for unicode metadata; extended formatting options for collection format statements; z3950 support extended to Windows and Mac OS X, including a new z3950 server.

111The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI),
112an easy-to-use frontend to Greenstone's collection-building
113functionality, has been extensively user tested and debugged.
114If you haven't already tried it, now is a great
115time to do so (and if you ran into problems before, please try this new version).
116Greenstone 2.50 also includes the new (and already very popular) PagedImgPlug plugin for
117processing sequences of page images, a new classifier that displays a
118collage of the images in a collection, provision for incremental updates
119of Greenstone in the future, and many other bug fixes and improvements.
120}
121
122_t5_ {
123One of the trickier parts of using Greenstone is coming up with a
124configuration file for your collection. To help learn how to do it,
125several fully-documented example collections have been placed at <a
126href="http://nzdl.org">nzdl.org</a> which explain, on the collection home page, just how they have been put together.
127}

130The complete Greenstone interface, and all documentation, is available in

133href="_httppagex_(intn)">other languages</a>. We are looking for <a

135interfaces and help maintain existing ones.

138_t7_ {
139The aim of the Greenstone software is to empower users, particularly in universities,
140libraries, and other public service institutions, to build their own
141digital libraries. Digital libraries are radically reforming how
142information is disseminated and acquired in UNESCO's partner communities
143and institutions in the fields of education, science and culture around the
144world, and particularly in developing countries. We hope that this
145software will encourage the effective deployment of digital libraries to
146share information and place it in the public domain. Further information
147can be found in the book <a href="http://www.nzdl.org/howto">How to build a
148digital library</a>, authored by two of the group's project members.

918_t282_ {Full translation}
919
920_t283_ {
921Full translations of Greenstone include the interface and all the
922documentation. Translating the documentation is a big job, and so far,
923apart from the UNESCO-supported CD-ROM project, there is only one example
924-- Kazakh. We would like to encourage more people to do full translations.
925}
926
927_t284_ {Maintained interface-only translation}
928
929_t285_ {
930"Maintained" translations include the language interface and a
931designated person who updates it. The Greenstone interface has been
932translated into many languages. However, the system is growing and language
933interfaces become out-dated as new features are added to the software. For
934each language, we are hoping to find a volunteer who undertakes to
935periodically maintain the interface for that language.
936}
937
938_t286_ {Unmaintained interface-only translation}
939
940_t287_ {
941The interface comes in two parts: a "core" part that contains the
942basic digital library interface, and an "auxiliary" part that
943concerns functionality that is generally only used by the library
944maintainer (e.g. the Administration pages and the Collector). Many language
945interfaces just contain the core part; since the core changes relatively
946slowly these are mostly fairly complete. However, some unmaintained
947translations are rather out of date.
948}

950_t288_ {In progress}
951
952_t289_ {For some languages, the translation process is still in progress.}
953
954_t290_ {
955When you download Greenstone, the core language interfaces (English,
956French, Spanish and Russian) come automatically. The other languages are
957provided in a separate package which can be <a
958href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12123&release_id=173035">downloaded</a>
959and installed as required. This makes the downloads smaller, and for those
960who do not need all the languages Greenstone is slightly smaller and
961faster.

1087There are two methods for working with Greenstone language interface (apart
1088from editing the macro files directly, which is not recommended).
1089}
1090
1091_t327_ {Spreadsheet}
1092
1093_t328_ {
1094We send you an Excel spreadsheet that contains all the English text
1095strings, with empty cells for the translation. You fill it in and return
1096it, and we install it in Greenstone. This method is probably the best for
1097large-scale translation, but requires Microsoft software.
1098}
1099
1100_t329_ {Greenstone Translator's Interface}
1101
1102_t330_ {
1103The Greenstone translator's interface is a Web tool that presents the
1104English text strings needing translation, and provides boxes for entering
1105the translated text. Once submitted, translations are stored in the
1106appropriate language file. The system automatically determines which text
1107strings need translating or updating, and can easily be used to update a
1108language interface.
1109}
1110
1111_t331_ {
1112Generally it is best to use the spreadsheet to create the basic interface
1113and the translation interface to fine tune or update it in the future. In
1114either case you need a username and password, which we supply to designated
1115Greenstone language maintainers.

1122results.

1136As soon as you log in, the front page of the translator's interface is
1137presented to you. Read the instructions and start translating! You don't
1138have to translate all the strings in one session -- you can stop and
1139continue work later. There is a link at the bottom of each page under the
1140"submit" button that allows you to view a Greenstone site in the language
1141you have chosen, and see your translations take effect. (However, the
1142images are not yet created as you go.)

1148For your information and interest, the language-dependent text in
1149Greenstone comes in these places. We do not attempt to translate the
1150comments that appear in program code, scripts, or configuration files. Our
1151guideline is that non-programming users doing standard things with
1152Greenstone should be able to work entirely in their own language.
