Julian, (good morning)

the .dm files are really used when you go to preferences and select a different language.
If I, for example, go to port-br.dm and change
Contributors[l=es] {Categoria}, It will only take effect when I select
the Portuguese-br as a language on my preferences.

For your 'special' meaning for 'dc.Description', I would suggest you
to copy a dm that you prefer, and update it with your description.
But anyway, you still have to go to preferences, and select your special
dm file for having an effect in your interface...

I updated my collection like this and I was fine...(i am using the last
greenstone version). Let me know if this works with you.

regards,
nadia.

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

I have two questions for the community.

1) I am using GEMS to create new metadata sets. Everything seems to be
fine. However, some time after I create a set, data is missing. This data
can be either comments, a definition, or even a subelement of an element.
I have deleted such metadata sets and create them again from scratch but I
am having the same problems. In terms of the missing subelements, this
only happens when I create something like:

Element 1
Subelement 1 of element 1
subelement 2 of the subelement 1....
subelement 3 of the subelement 2
In this case, I am losing either subelement 2 or 3 or both. This does not
happen all the time and doesn't happen with any set frequency or pattern.


2) Is anyone mixing and matching various metadata sets? Are you mixing
with complete metadata sets or creating subsets of larger sets to fit your
collections' metadata? The reason I ask is what type of preservation will
be involved with mixing and matching metadata sets or created a unique set
made of elements taken from other sets? In short, is it better to stay
with only 1 metadata set?

Thanks,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifier

In response to 1, do you find things missing after using the set in GLI?
Or just while developing in GEMS? This is really weird and of course,
worrying.
does it disappear when you open it up again somewhere?
have you checked the metadata set file itself? eg is it just the
interface that is not displaying correctly? or has it gone from the
file? are you editing the set in different collections, ie getting
different copies at different times?

do you create the set once, then use it? or are you workign with the
collection in GLI, and modifying the set in GEMS at the same time? in
that case, maybe GLI is overwriting your additions with its old stored
set???

regards,
Katherine

Dear Karan,

I hope your Greenstone installation is
proper. See whether there is "Power Point
Plugin" in the GLI >> Design Panel >> Document
Plugins. It should be on display there in the panel if your
installation is o.k. Do let us know if the problem
persists.
