Subject [greenstone-users] RE:translating metadata into arabic
Dear Elhamid,

Please read the file "adding_translations" in directory 'Program
FilesGreenstoneglimetadata' .I think your should prepare your source text
in a UTF8 encoded document
to solve this problem.Also you may develop dls metadata and complete the
metadata in english and then translate into Arabic by using the Greenstone
Editor for Metadata Sets in Arabic .
Please find the attached modified Arabic dls based upon Common Communication
Format "CCF" metadata.I hope this may help you.
All the best
