Thanks Stephen,

I was aware that you could change the interface to french.  I guess what I am trying to figure out is when you change the interface to french that the browsing lists (eg.subject) display french terms as well and when you are in the english interface the english terms are displayed.  Not even sure if this is a possibility in Greenstone.  Thanks for the french DC link, it is useful.

know what you think;

1. Greenstone has a search iterface in many languages including french

2. You can use the metadata editor to make metadata sets of your own.
If dublin Core (or the others which are all in english) is not
suitable then you can either use a french metadata set or make a new
metadata set with the metadata editor tool.
Maybe DC in french to to make it easier to use?  I found this
I don't know how good it is.

I have a collection of texual docuements that I have embedded subject
metadata into the section html code, so greenstone is extracting it for
me.  Is there a way to have a french equivilent of the metadata without
having to redo french metadata in the html code?  Has anyone tackled
this before?  It is just the subject terms that need to be in french
they will still point to the same english document.
