Description Ruediger Landmann 2011-04-18 03:48:49 UTC
Translation takes place after the content of a book is finalized, at a point where authors may not know who (if anybody) will translate the book. A per-language XML file could hold a <othercredit class="translator"> element to include in the front matter of translated books, and would allow translators to set this credit appropriately for their language.

Comment 1 Jeff Fearn 🐞 2011-04-18 05:38:02 UTC
Added handling of $translation/Author_Group.xml, when a book is built this file, if it exists, will be appended to the $source_lang/Author_Group.xml file.

$translation/Author_Group.xml and $source_lang/Author_Group.xml must both be a valid DocBook authorgroups.

Comment 2 Michael Hideo 2012-06-08 01:28:54 UTC
create book with at least 1 translation set up for it. then add an author group xml file to the translation directory. build and verify that the translated author xml gets added to the english xml. 1 hour.

Comment 3 Hedda Peters 2012-06-14 04:54:42 UTC
Verified, works beautifully.

Translator's credits are added underneath the writer's credits, see attached screenshot if anyone's interested.

Documentation might be needed for adding translator credit.
