Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] "translated" indexes

Typically you just translate the indexterms in place in the document and let the xslts generate a new index. For Japanese, you add sortas attributes to your primary, secondary, and tertiary elements with the term transliterated into a phonetic script (katakana or hiragana). 

Another problem is having terms divided into indexdivs correctly. For your options, see: http://www.sagehill.net/docbookxsl/IndexIntl.html

Subject: [docbook-apps] "translated" indexes

I never tried that but I was wondering what was the best way to sort an index after translation of the file set ? Especially in the case of languages that do not use the same character set (for ex English vs Japanese) ?

What would be the best way to establish an easy to translate index ?
