Choosing the translation service

Hi All,

As you know, we are going to translate recently completed Firebird 
Language Reference in Russian into English.
For this purpose we are working with translation services.
I need input from English speakers (native and not native :) about 
quality of the following test translation from one of the services:
https://yadi.sk/i/uh1WeVY9ccChv

Obviously, this translation needs some additional work, and also we can 
supply translator with some kind of guideline how to translate certain 
things in better way, but the question is: should we choose them or need 
to try another one?

Regards,
Alexey Kovyazin

Document building toolset

I was working on the wireprotocol documentation and had some PDF 
rendering issues. So I looked at the toolset for building documentation, 
and I noticed that some of it is rather dated (for example the 
docbook-xsl and Apache FOP).

In my local copy I have replaced docbook-xsl and FOP with the latest 
version. I haven't looked closely at all output yet, but apart from 
higher memory requirements and more verbose logging it seems to work.

I didn't fully solve the rendering issue that triggered this, but it 
looks like some of the custom XSLs may need some tweaking.

I will do some more testing, but is it ok if I replace the files on 
firebirdsql.org (ALLJARS.ZIP and docbook-stylesheets.zip)?

Reference page Page reorg

I've got a suggestion from Lukas Eder for reference manuals page

Maybe it needs a little reorg and cleanup

https://twitter.com/lukaseder/status/502724453714124800

some documents can be put at the bottom or in another area

for example Interbase and Firebird coexistance/ FB 1.0 GSG can be
moved to Archive/Older docs category

Progress

Hi all,

This is just to let you know that I'm making time available for the Language Reference this year. I'm working
on the DML chapter now, and I'm somewhere in the middle of the SELECT statement. All the others are finished
(the other DML statements, that is - not the other chapters!)

I will do my utmost to have a "basic" Language Reference ready this year, i.e. possibly without all the
details on Dialect 1 and other things that people can hopefully live without for a while (or grab the IB6
LangRef if they can't).

Once finished, updating it to Firebird 3 shouldn't be a hell of a job.

But it ain't finished yet.

Cheers,
Paul Vinkenoog

[Offtopic] Game text translation

Hello friends,

first sorry for off-topic, but if you'll keep reading - you will see why I
post here.

Our company (yes, we are DQ Team and we did Firebird SQL site) has
game-development department (heh, 4 persons) and we need to localize a
fiew pages of ingame texts from English to Dutch, French, German,
Italian, Portuguese (Brazillian version, I`m not sure if
"classical" Portuguese is the same language) and Spanish.

We need translation performed by native speakers, local translation
agencies offer us Google translated texts, which is not acceptable,
professinal agency from Moskow asked an astronomical sum from us.

The texts is in the form:

variable_name = Text name.

This is why I think people from this community can do this job well.

We will pay for this work a reasonable sum, let say $100 USD.
(I think, it is better to pay to someone from the FB community
for native translation rather to pay for google translated text).
Personally for me, the whole translation of the texts to Russian
took less than 3 hours (with 2 coffe-breaks and news reading).

If anyone from this list is interested - please, drop me a message to
serj (at) dqteam  dot com - with the subject "Game translation".

As a bonus, you will receive English and your localized version of our
M3 game :)

Wireprotocol documentation

As I am working on a new implementation of the wire protocol in Jaybird, 
I occasionally run into things that are not (clearly) documented in the 
wireprotocol documentation (src/docs/firebirddocs/wireprotocol.xml).

Are there any objections if I add to or improve on this document?

New German translation - Firebird Cache

Hello,

 

I’ve just completed the German translation of the Firebird Cache document. For everybody interested in it, please visit http://firebird.it-syn.de/html/de/ for the HTML version. The PDF can be found here: http://firebird.it-syn.de/pdf/firebirddocs-de.pdf.

 

If there are no comments I think we can integrate it soon into the manual module.

 

Kind regards

Martin

New German translations committed and published

Hi all,

Today, I have committed Martin's translations of the Docwriters' Guide, the Non-Western Fonts Guide and
the VPN Howto to CVS (trunk and B_Release branch).

The HTML and PDF versions are at http://www.firebirdsql.org/en/reference-manuals/, under "Manuals
for Firebird Docwriters".

BTW, I noticed that some PDF bookmarks contain long rows of spaces, e.g. "Vorbereitung aufs Schreiben:
Erstellung eines           Abrisses!" in the Docwriting-Anleitung.

The problem is not with the DocBook XML sources. The titles in the source do contain rows of (indentation)
spaces sometimes, but mostly in other places than in the PDF. It seems that FOP retains the spaces in the .fo
file while creating the bookmarks, but not while creating the titles in the document body.

The funny thing is: I can't remember ever having seen this before, and I've been using the same FOP version
for years. So I don't understand what has changed.

We should probably be able to solve this through the fo transformation stylesheets (by making sure that no
line-wrapping occurs in bookmark-title elements). But (you guessed it) I don't have time for this.
Meanwhile, anybody who builds a PDF and is *really* annoyed by this new feature can tweak the .fo (just
remove the newline and indentation spaces; the bookmarks are near the top of the file) and then build fo2pdf.

Cheers,
Paul Vinkenoog
