The manual is located here.

Selecting a chapter/page for translation

  2. In the upper right corner, change to the language you want to translate to

  3. Click the button translate to the upper right

  4. The wiki page will now go into split windows. The left window contains the original language (English) and the right side is the window for the language you want to translate. If no translation has been done yet, the right window will be empty. It is in the right window where you as a translator will add the text for the new language. The picture below shows a page where the translations has begun.

How to add Table of Contents

Working with tables

  • To add a table, place your cursor where you want your table and click on "Table" in the tool bar. You can then choose the size of the table (i.e. 3x3 as the picture shows). However, you will most likely not find the appropriate size, but do not worry about it, just add the table.
  • If you need to add/delete rows or columns, simply click to place your cursor in the table. This action causes a new row in the tool bar to be visible. Simply click on any icon to perform desired action.

Adding an image

  • Select "Insert" in the tool bar, and select image.
  • A small window will pop up with all the pictures used by the original language (left window). Select you image you want to add and click "Insert".

Saving the page

  • You can save at any time. Just push the button "Save" at the lower left.
  • A new window will pop up and ask for "Translation status". The "Complete" button should be selected when the entire page has been translated. Until then, "Not (yet) Complete" should be selected. (If you happen to use the wrong button, no panic! Both buttons do save the page in the same way, but thehe "Complete" button is used for us internally for status purposes.
