|Subject||Re: [greenstone-users] multilingual collection metadata again|
Its not only possible, multilingual support is one of the main built in features of Greenstone.
This support is available not only for metadata, but for any interface text visible in a greenstone collection.
For each of your documents, you can have metadata like the following:
title_en "title in english"
title_fr "title in francais"
title_es "title in espanol"
And based on what the "l" cgi argument is set to, you can have greenstone display the relevent title.
Heres a working example of this:
The Ed Greevy Photograph Collection, on www.ulukau.org
If you browse to an individual photo, for example
You can use the language toggle links at the top right, either "english text", or "kikokikona hawai'i" to toggle between display of english metadata or hawaiian metadata.
This collection has metadata added in two languages for the metadata items: title, caption, struggle.
