Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-704) Public Comment:OpenDocument 1.2v7-02: Table of Contents

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-704?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16265#action_16265 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-704:

I was not proposing elimination of the attribute and element names in the headings, nor the notation used for that.  I was thinking more of supplemental text after the initial part that would be translatable and might provide something useful to readers of translations..

My understanding of the difficulty with the Japanese translation of the IS 26300 TOC has to do with the noun phrases apparently being very difficult without knowing the subject matter.  

I like the provisions of the translation policy.  The only question for me is whether providing such English supplementary information is more helpful than not having any supplemental information in the titles. 

 Although I am in no position to determine that, my preference, all else considered equal, would be to do something pro-actively helpful in this regard.

We can of course wait until public review to see what the response to the titles in ODF 1.2 will be.  I would not close this issue; we need a way to keep our eye on it.  Perhaps it should be resolved pending public review and not applied until we find out what the future brings.
