Description simonbr 2004-09-25 17:47:41 UTC
The names of the columns in the bibliography database (menu View - Data Sources, Bibliography - Tables - biblio) are always in English. It was suggested to me to translate them, but if you change the column names (in biblio.dbf) then the bibliography related functions in OOo don't work anymore, as they appear to rely on a specific naming of the columns. I suspect this could be handled by making the relevant section in officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/Office/DataAccess.xcu localizable, and providing a matching biblio.dbf for each language. A complication could occur when upgrading the OOo version, I assume that the user keeps the biblio.dbf file which then has the English column names while the new localized OOo version knows only of the new ones. A conversion would be necessary during upgrading.
