Subject: RE: OASIS DITA Translation Subcommittee -- Agenda 24 July 2006

Can I suggest that we add to the agenda the question about not translating indexterms and keywords in an exact one to one match. It should be possible to add or remove indexterms and keywords. This, to my knowledge, cannot be managed by any tool. 

For example, in Qc we have these indexterm for info about email.


That's because mél is used in France, courriel in Québec and many users use the English term email. It does not make sense to have 3 entries in English, one would be enough. You meet the same issue when a two word expression in one language becomes a one work expression.

	<indexterm>page d'</indexterm>


This example is so so because there are work arounds, but it's the only one I could think of at this time.
