Hi list,
Someone may be able to give me a quick leg-up on this one. I know the
basics but I just can't quite get this one right.
I need to produce different translations of the navigation buttons based
on the browser classifiers, but also I have changed the use of one or
two dc. items. For example, I want to use dc.Contributor to mean, for
my purposes 'category'. That's just my choice to save setting up an
entirely new metadata set. Then I want to translate 'category' into
Spanish (Italian, French...).
But, even though I've made the change in, say, the Spanish.dm macro
(Contributors[l=es] {categor□a}), I'm not getting this result
ultimately. Instead I keep getting the English 'Category'. What am I
doing wrong?

Let me take this one step further. originally I intended to use the
'dc.Description' label this way. But I have any number of collections
in any number of languages, and I'm using 'dc.Description' successfully,
as 'descripci□n', 'descrizione'....in any number of languages for these
collections. Meaning that if I go and change that to 'Category' in a
language.dm I'm in trouble, because I want to keep its original meaning
for 99.9% of the collections. So I though I could get around this by
including my 'special' meaning for 'dc.Description' in an extra. dm for
that collection. But I don't get any result from that either. Again,
my question - what m I doing wrong, or perhaps better, overlooking?
I've a feeling I'm on the right track but not changing everything that
needs to be changed. Can someone help out please?
Julian
