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.

97This scheme allows users to augment and edit collections that are held on a remote Greenstone server. Users work with a modified version of the Greenstone Librarian Interface but do not need to have Greenstone running locally. Multiple users can collaborate on the same collection (though not at the same time). <a href="http://www.cs.waikato.ac.nz/~mdewsnip/greenstone/west-yorkshire/remote-greenstone.html">Here</a> are details of an experimental version that you can download.

119The Greenstone Librarian Interface (GLI),
120an easy-to-use frontend to Greenstone's collection-building
121functionality, has been extensively user tested and debugged.
122If you haven't already tried it, now is a great
123time to do so (and if you ran into problems before, please try this new version).
124Greenstone 2.50 also includes the new (and already very popular) PagedImgPlug plugin for
125processing sequences of page images, a new classifier that displays a
126collage of the images in a collection, provision for incremental updates
127of Greenstone in the future, and many other bug fixes and improvements.

133several fully-documented example collections have been placed at <a

146_t7_ {
147The aim of the Greenstone software is to empower users, particularly in universities,
148libraries, and other public service institutions, to build their own
149digital libraries. Digital libraries are radically reforming how
150information is disseminated and acquired in UNESCO's partner communities
151and institutions in the fields of education, science and culture around the
152world, and particularly in developing countries. We hope that this
153software will encourage the effective deployment of digital libraries to
154share information and place it in the public domain. Further information
155can be found in the book <a href="http://www.nzdl.org/howto">How to build a
156digital library</a>, authored by two of the group's project members.

917Alternatively, 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.

929_t280_ {Core languages}
930
931_t281_ {
932English, French, Spanish, and Russian are Greenstone core languages. For
933these there is a full translation, including interface, documentation,
934sample collections, installation instructions. They have been produced in
935conjunction with UNESCO and are distributed with all versions of
936Greenstone, including the CD-ROM version. They are updated whenever the
937CD-ROM is re-issued (so far, approximately once a year).
938}
939
940_t282_ {Full translation}
941
942_t283_ {
943Full translations of Greenstone include the interface and all the
944documentation. Translating the documentation is a big job, and so far,
945apart from the UNESCO-supported CD-ROM project, there is only one example
946-- Kazakh. We would like to encourage more people to do full translations.
947}
948
949_t284_ {Maintained interface-only translation}
950
951_t285_ {
952"Maintained" translations include the language interface and a
953designated person who updates it. The Greenstone interface has been
954translated into many languages. However, the system is growing and language
955interfaces become out-dated as new features are added to the software. For
956each language, we are hoping to find a volunteer who undertakes to
957periodically maintain the interface for that language.
958}
959
960_t286_ {Unmaintained interface-only translation}
961
962_t287_ {
963The interface comes in two parts: a "core" part that contains the
964basic digital library interface, and an "auxiliary" part that
965concerns functionality that is generally only used by the library
966maintainer (e.g. the Administration pages and the Collector). Many language
967interfaces just contain the core part; since the core changes relatively
968slowly these are mostly fairly complete. However, some unmaintained
969translations are rather out of date.
970}
971
972_t288_ {In progress}
973
974_t289_ {For some languages, the translation process is still in progress.}
975
976_t290_ {
977When you download Greenstone, the core language interfaces (English,
978French, Spanish and Russian) come automatically. The other languages are
979provided in a separate package which can be <a
980href="http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=12123&release_id=173035">downloaded</a>
981and installed as required. This makes the downloads smaller, and for those
982who do not need all the languages Greenstone is slightly smaller and
983faster.

1111
1112_t326_ {
1113There are two methods for working with Greenstone language interface (apart
1114from editing the macro files directly, which is not recommended).
1115}
1116
1117_t327_ {Spreadsheet}
1118
1119_t328_ {
1120We send you an Excel spreadsheet that contains all the English text
1121strings, with empty cells for the translation. You fill it in and return
1122it, and we install it in Greenstone. This method is probably the best for
1123large-scale translation, but requires Microsoft software.
1124}
1125
1126_t329_ {Greenstone Translator's Interface}
1127
1128_t330_ {
1129The Greenstone translator's interface is a Web tool that presents the
1130English text strings needing translation, and provides boxes for entering
1131the translated text. Once submitted, translations are stored in the
1132appropriate language file. The system automatically determines which text
1133strings need translating or updating, and can easily be used to update a
1134language interface.
1135}
1136
1137_t331_ {
1138Generally it is best to use the spreadsheet to create the basic interface
1139and the translation interface to fine tune or update it in the future. In
1140either case you need a username and password, which we supply to designated
1141Greenstone language maintainers.
1142}
1143
1144_t331extra_ {If you are interested, you can play with
1145an open version of the system by logging into <a
1146href="http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/gti/library">this page</a> with
1147username "guest" and no password, though if you do this you cannot save the
1148results.
1149}
1150
1151_t332_ {
1152To register as a designated Greenstone language maintainer, please send a
1153request to Michael Dewsnip (<a
1154href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a>). As
1155soon as you receive your password please change it by going to <a
1156href="http://www.nzdl.org/cgi-bin/gti/library">this page</a>,
1157choosing the administration option, clicking the "change password" option
1158on the left hand side, and following the instructions.
1159}
1160
1161_t333_ {
1162As soon as you log in, the front page of the translator's interface is
1163presented to you. Read the instructions and start translating! You don't
1164have to translate all the strings in one session -- you can stop and
1165continue work later. There is a link at the bottom of each page under the
1166"submit" button that allows you to view a Greenstone site in the language
1167you have chosen, and see your translations take effect. (However, the
1168images are not yet created as you go.)

1171_t334_ {Language-dependent text in Greenstone}
1172
1173_t335_ {
1174For your information and interest, the language-dependent text in
1175Greenstone comes in these places. We do not attempt to translate the
1176comments that appear in program code, scripts, or configuration files. Our
1177guideline is that non-programming users doing standard things with
1178Greenstone should be able to work entirely in their own language.
