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,

114The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI),
115an easy-to-use frontend to Greenstone's collection-building
116functionality, has been extensively user tested and debugged.
117If you haven't already tried it, now is a great
118time to do so (and if you ran into problems before, please try this new version).
119Greenstone 2.50 also includes the new (and already very popular) PagedImgPlug plugin for
120processing sequences of page images, a new classifier that displays a
121collage of the images in a collection, provision for incremental updates
122of Greenstone in the future, and many other bug fixes and improvements.

142The aim of the Greenstone software is to empower users, particularly in universities,
143libraries, and other public service institutions, to build their own
144digital libraries. Digital libraries are radically reforming how
145information is disseminated and acquired in UNESCO's partner communities
146and institutions in the fields of education, science and culture around the
147world, and particularly in developing countries. We hope that this
148software will encourage the effective deployment of digital libraries to
149share information and place it in the public domain. Further information
150can be found in the book <a href="http://www.nzdl.org/howto">How to build a

910We do not know what upcoming courses these organizations are scheduling: please contact them directly.

912Alternatively, if your department/organization is willing to organise and fund a Greenstone workshop in your area, we might be able to run it (depending on what other commitments we have). We would require our air travel and basic accomodation to be paid for, and if you're feeling generous, a donation towards our research costs would be appreciated.

924_t280_ {Core languages}
925
926_t281_ {
927English, French, Spanish, and Russian are Greenstone core languages. For
928these there is a full translation, including interface, documentation,
929sample collections, installation instructions. They have been produced in
930conjunction with UNESCO and are distributed with all versions of
931Greenstone, including the CD-ROM version. They are updated whenever the
932CD-ROM is re-issued (so far, approximately once a year).
933}
934
935_t282_ {Full translation}
936
937_t283_ {
938Full translations of Greenstone include the interface and all the
939documentation. Translating the documentation is a big job, and so far,
940apart from the UNESCO-supported CD-ROM project, there is only one example
941-- Kazakh. We would like to encourage more people to do full translations.
942}
943
944_t284_ {Maintained interface-only translation}
945
946_t285_ {
947"Maintained" translations include the language interface and a
948designated person who updates it. The Greenstone interface has been
949translated into many languages. However, the system is growing and language
950interfaces become out-dated as new features are added to the software. For
951each language, we are hoping to find a volunteer who undertakes to
952periodically maintain the interface for that language.
953}
954
955_t286_ {Unmaintained interface-only translation}
956
957_t287_ {
958The interface comes in two parts: a "core" part that contains the
959basic digital library interface, and an "auxiliary" part that
960concerns functionality that is generally only used by the library
961maintainer (e.g. the Administration pages and the Collector). Many language
962interfaces just contain the core part; since the core changes relatively
963slowly these are mostly fairly complete. However, some unmaintained
964translations are rather out of date.
965}
966
967_t288_ {In progress}
968
969_t289_ {For some languages, the translation process is still in progress.}
970
971_t290_ {
972When you download Greenstone, the core language interfaces (English,
973French, Spanish and Russian) come automatically. The other languages are
974provided in a separate package which can be <a
975href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12123&release_id=173035">downloaded</a>
976and installed as required. This makes the downloads smaller, and for those
977who do not need all the languages Greenstone is slightly smaller and
978faster.

1107_t326_ {
1108There are two methods for working with Greenstone language interface (apart
1109from editing the macro files directly, which is not recommended).
1110}
1111
1112_t327_ {Spreadsheet}
1113
1114_t328_ {
1115We send you an Excel spreadsheet that contains all the English text
1116strings, with empty cells for the translation. You fill it in and return
1117it, and we install it in Greenstone. This method is probably the best for
1118large-scale translation, but requires Microsoft software.
1119}
1120
1121_t329_ {Greenstone Translator's Interface}
1122
1123_t330_ {
1124The Greenstone translator's interface is a Web tool that presents the
1125English text strings needing translation, and provides boxes for entering
1126the translated text. Once submitted, translations are stored in the
1127appropriate language file. The system automatically determines which text
1128strings need translating or updating, and can easily be used to update a
1129language interface.
1130}
1131
1132_t331_ {
1133Generally it is best to use the spreadsheet to create the basic interface
1134and the translation interface to fine tune or update it in the future. In
1135either case you need a username and password, which we supply to designated
1136Greenstone language maintainers.
1137}
1138
1139_t331extra_ {If you are interested, you can play with
1140an open version of the system by logging into <a
1141href="http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/gti/library">this page</a> with
1142username "guest" and no password, though if you do this you cannot save the
1143results.
1144}
1145
1146_t332_ {
1147To register as a designated Greenstone language maintainer, please send a
1148request to Michael Dewsnip (<a
1149href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>). As
1150soon as you receive your password please change it by going to <a
1151href="http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/gti/library">this page</a>,
1152choosing the administration option, clicking the "change password" option
1153on the left hand side, and following the instructions.
1154}
1155
1156_t333_ {
1157As soon as you log in, the front page of the translator's interface is
1158presented to you. Read the instructions and start translating! You don't
1159have to translate all the strings in one session -- you can stop and
1160continue work later. There is a link at the bottom of each page under the
1161"submit" button that allows you to view a Greenstone site in the language
1162you have chosen, and see your translations take effect. (However, the
1163images are not yet created as you go.)

1166_t334_ {Language-dependent text in Greenstone}
1167
1168_t335_ {
1169For your information and interest, the language-dependent text in
1170Greenstone comes in these places. We do not attempt to translate the
1171comments that appear in program code, scripts, or configuration files. Our
1172guideline is that non-programming users doing standard things with
1173Greenstone should be able to work entirely in their own language.
