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

Re: How can I help ?

Hola Marcello !

Muy bueana idea de poner las palabras en Portuguese tambien !
Puedes enviar un messaje a Niikolai para que te des el derecho de modificar la lista.

Just a thought...

Considering the very popular Tatra mountains, I think Slovak and Polish shall be squeezed into the list of "frontline" languages.

Re: Just a thought...

Hi,

Surely you´re right... but what about Russian?
The problem is the space, I´d like Summitposters can print the page properly to take it in the back when we climb mountains abroad.

East Europe languages are relevant of course, but how to solve the problem of the space?

Probably with a 2nd mountain dictionary terms list. English would be in both. What do you think?

Fountain?

This page is a good idea.

fountain/source

Perhaps you mean spring? I've never heard of a fountain in the mountains, so I assume you mean spring? Or maybe they use the word fountain for spring in England or Australia?

Also, crevasse is spelled with two s in English.

Re: Fountain?

Yep Scott, I think British use the term fountain for spring (5th edition of the British Collins Spanish Dictionary). Though it should be said drinking fountain I understand this term is used for naming built drinking fountains.

A source (of a stream or a river) would be "manantial" in Spanish

What about...

(who's up to it ?)

- Are we going to make an equipment dictionary ?
(rope, ice axe, helmet etc...)

Re: What about...

I don't even use Google Docs, I edit it right here on SP, very easy and it works 100%. You just need to replace the proper "
" with your text.

Re: Weather and gear

Hi,

There´s a sheet in the shared GoogleDocs spreadsheet, although it has no contents yet.
I´m terribly buzy this week but I´ll try to get ready the gear sheet today so you can add contents to it.

nikolai79

nikolai79 - Oct 11, 2007 10:58 am - Hasn't voted

Re: Weather and gear

I can explain it.
There´s no automatical process to export the spreadsheet contents into html tables... it´s me :-D
This week I having buzy (and horrible) days... so I couldn´t work on the page. I´ll try to update it toning.

Please let me know when you add something directly on html tables. There´s a good reason. I assume the news version it´s the spreadsheet document, because everybody can add contents on the same file, a unique database.
Also this is the reason why I´d prefer the collaborators add new contents using the shared spreadsheet, I´ll save time and, the most important thing: nothing will be erased.

If someone has any problem adding somothing, or find difficulties using the speadsheet just let me know. :-D
I´ll include the new terms for you.

Thanks for your help.

Re: Weather and gear

Finally it was imposible to update the html tables, because now it´s late and tomorrow I´m travelling. Right now there is another collaborator editing the shared spreadsheet so I can´t edit the page without overwriting his version and also I can´t export the html table and update the page without loosing the terms some people have added directly on the html tables...

sometimes it´s complicated, but there is a challenge, isn´t it?

I promise you all to update the page next week, including more terms.

Also, I´d like to fix the edition problems I have commented.

and

THANKS A LOT FOR THE GREAT COLLABORATIONS WE ARE RECIVING!

Re: Great resource

In fact they are, but I´ve realized the colour of the font it´s dark grey so it´s difficult to see because cells are black. I don´t know the reason why the fonts have this horrible colour, they are supposed to be white :-S

I´ll try to fix the problem tomorrow. Thanks for your advice.

Addition/correction

Hi,
some Italian terms are lacking and others should be corrected. For example:
- crack (wrong) = "fessura (f)" instead of "crepaccio (m)"
- face (lacking) = "faccia (f)"
and so on.
Are you interested in any support/suggestion?
Ciao
Paolo
