Subject:RE: "Sheet x of n" for multi-page tables From:"Chad LaCroix" <chad -at- architext-usa -dot- com> To:"TECHWR-L" <techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com> Date:Fri, 15 Apr 2005 10:57:09 -0400
I didn't care for the word "sheet" and didn't know what that would translate
to (I didn't want a reference to bedding in our user guides for
international customers), so I changed it to say "Page X of Y".
If this is a concern that you have that has not been brought about by
experience with your vendor then I would not worry too much about it. Most
legitimate translation vendors are set up to deal with ambiguous word issues
that are much more complex than that. If this is a concern that *has*
sprouted from experience with your vendor.....your translation vendor should
be strung up and beaten!
