News about this project

I´m looking for a easier way to let the collaborators exchange the info, something like a shared spreadsheet throug Google Docs or something similar, because I think it´s quite frustrating editing the html code directely.

The idea is:

* Collaborators edit the spreadsheet.
* Once the spreadsheet is updated export the info into html code
* Update SP with the html code exported from the spreadsheet

I´d like to know your opinions

Thanks everybody for your help!!!!


More news
:

I was looking for a good way that let people just add information just
writing down into cell on a spreadsheet. Obviusly, human been like fresh air, clean water, flowers... but not edit a table contents on html code directly.

The good news is I think I have the tool to do the dirty work: using Google
Docs we can centralize into a unique file all the collaborations. Any of you just need to go into the
document using your web browser and simply edit the contents. :-D (it´s cool... and free!!!).
I have an account and a document on it. The only thing I need it´s your
email account. Then I´ll invite you to be a collaborator of the document and you´ll recive an email on your
box. Just click on the hyperlink you´ll find in the message and access the file.
Another great thing: if someone make a mistake or something we can go back,
because it records the versions of the document automatically.
Also, it lets exchange messages, so we can comunicate the rest of the
members about the new contents, ideas etc...

Later, with this file completed, we can just export into html, so 80% it´s
done.
Just let me solve any problems I´m having with table html on SP... then the
proccess will be clear, simple and easier then edit html code.


-----

The spreadsheet on-line system using Google Docs is ready and running. All the people interested in collaborate with the page just send me a Private Message or email, adding a gmail account to give you access to the file.

Portuguese and Polish languages are include in the shared database (the only GoogleDoc spreasheet) so new page with other languages will be ready soon.


Other languages help needed




Problems with GoogleDocs: we have exceed the cells limits of the on-line document


Problem has been solved spliting the shared file in three files

Look forward to seeing how this grows. I've attached my Glossary article, which covers English toponomy but leaves plenty of room for more. Google docs sounds like a good idea to me.

Re: here you can find a

Having this information directly on SP seems relevent to me. I'm sure there other pages/subjects on SP that are already covered by some random website somewhere.
If we manage to have an accurate list, I think this can be useful.

Re: here you can find a

I agree that this info is really important, but I think it should be put in the first row of the left column in every mountain, range, route ecc page, otherwise it could be not seen ... so, useless
I would suggest to open a thread asking elves to do it

Re: here you can find a

Hi!

It was a surprise for me to know about amazing nartreb´s glosary page. Also, it was a shock the great page that gabriele.roth show us. I was so sorprised I thought we were working on this page for nothing. But Myzantrope is right, it´s good for SP comunity to has this info. Even we can have a look these other sites and get some ideas, adding our own ideas... we can make a good dictionary.

In my opinion this new page is a good complement for nartreb one. I would be great link each term defined in his page with the same term here and viceversa.

Also, gabriele is right, all our efford will be in vane if people doesn´t know about this two pages: glosary and dictionary. Maybe this kind of essential pages should be remarked in any way... so make a quetion to the elves is a good idea.


Now let me tell you about other thinks in my mind about the dictionary... why don´t we add the pronountiation of the words?
As a language student I learnt who to pronounce words reading the figurate pronountiation. I´ve found a page to get the figurate pronountiation for Spanish words. In the other languages is not difficult... we have this in common bilingual dictionaries.

In the Spanish Team forum we talked about create a parallel list of Spanish regional terms. I´m sure in other countries wil be the same... Also, there are a lot ot languages in SP and it would be great if we can get the terms in more languages. These regional terms and the other languages would be added in child pages.

Thanks a lot for your opinions and advices.

Re: here you can find a

The page is large enough to extra column to translate in languages with large communities on SP such as : Polish, Serbian/Croation, Hungarian/Pakistanese...

Nice job here, this is quite a piece of work, but I think the word 'Glacier' is a rather glaring omission!

If you would like Welsh (I know them all) and Scottish Gaelic (I know a few) terms to the dictionary, then let me know and I'll give you a hand adding them.

Re: Just a thought

Hi, we can look for a way to include those languages and many others too of course.
I talk with some of the Spanish Team SP members about a page with terms used only in specific areas of Spain... this page would be a new page attached as child to this one.

Let us think how to do it... any idea?
