Maintaining a manual in another language isn't just a one-off thing, ideally, it will be updated each time the english manual is updated. If you're still interested in maintaining a greek translation - that would be great. I'll contact you soon.
I caould make something in spanish, won't have much time since I'm going vacations in a couple of weeks, but I'll try....
PS2 V10 NTSC / MI v1.82 / ULE 3.80 / SMS 1.7.5 / HDL 0.8 / 300G HDD
I can work on a portuguese translation of the manual.
The user manual has been updated and is now online as fully hyperlinked html.
I've figured out how to use DocBook - this basically creates a common XML base manual which can then be used to generate a number of output formats. PDF is possible, but i haven't managed that yet!
If you are interested in translating it to another language (a fair bit of work ~5300 words!) then please let me know - you'll need a basic understanding of XML, and if you already know how to use DocBook - that's great! I'll tidy up the source code a bit more, and get the scripts all ready before putting the source into SVN. This will happen (latest) by 1st feb.
I'd really like your feedback on the manual - any corrections or ommissions, please let me know.
When replying to peoples' (+ noobs') questions you can now include a hyperlink direct to the relavent page of the manual. The manual is in the same place as before:
The HTML version looks nice, it's easier and faster to find what we want
I have linked to the user manual on the upcoming website, but would it also be okay if i copied/pasted some selected parts for a FAQ page?
@JuddMan: Yes, you are welcome to copy some sections of the manual for a faq page... but there is a faq page in the manual... Be careful about duplicating information because if an error needs correcting, it then needs correcting in two places. Please link back to the original in your copy in case something becomes outdated.
The SMS user manual has been udpdated again - now includes better subtitle instructions, more detail + examples on network configuration, plus other minor updates, corrections and colour scheme changes.
There is a tutorial on how to make the DVD-Video discs that will play in SMS on the temporary website. i didn't see instructions for that, so you're welcome to include it in the user manual if you like.
