RDF is not XML – RDF serialization and iiRDS metadata

The world of technical writing loves XML. Its document type definitions are the foundation of structured authoring. XML and the underlying schemas structure the content of our information products. The benefits are twofold. Content is consistently structured and easy to read. Authors have an easier time writing the content. The structure provides guidelines for authoring. mehr ...

How to become a technical writer – Confessions of a former translator

A former translator, I worked the first seven years of my professional life in the translation industry, in various positions. While I learned a lot from this experience, it also left me, as a writer, frustrated. Translators are chained to their source text and writing the words of others in another language, usually focusing on what their clients want. mehr ...

My first time at tekom

I got back from Stuttgart last night and it is safe to say that after three days of action-packed presentations, writing an article is not in the realm of possibilities right now as I try to connect one synapse with another.

However! As a teaser, here is a short list of the things I enjoyed over the last three days in no particular order:

More to come on our blog.

Hi,
I'm not sure whether it was you who asked how to translate this Markdown stuff -- I figured out a way how to do it without breaking tables or anything else. It's Okapi Rainbow that does the trick.

Hi Bernd,
No it wasn't me who asked :) But I'm interested in what you figured out with Rainbow, can you tell me more?
Best,

Hi there,

Sorry for the late response.

This is how it works (at least here):

Rainbow:
1. (opt.) set root dir
2. add doc(s) to input list
3. set languages + encoding
4. Utilities | Translation Kit Creation
5. set package type (here: OmegaT), set package name + output location
6. Execute

OmegaT
1. open project (= package name)
2. translate
3. generate translated file(s)

Rainbow:
1. empty input list
2. add "manifest.rkm" (from package root) to input list
3. Utilities | Translation Kit Post-Processing
4. Execute
5. (set output options), Continue

I don't have other TM tools here right now, so I can't check this for other package types, but I'm sure it'll work as well. The tricky part for me was to find the way back: to post-process the "manifest.rkm" file.

Best
Bernd

Thanks Bernd, it's useful to know! We might need to translate Markdown files at some point, who knows :)
Best,
