Managing updates to a published translation
Posted by Sylvie Leblanc on 2015-11-18 18:30
The French translation team is just starting to work on its first update after having launched WebDewey. What advice or best practices have been developed to manage the update process, particularly for significant updates that would require informing classifiers of changes?

Thanks for your request, reaching us at just the right time! The German National Library has recently contracted Pansoft for the development of a full publication workflow for DDC updates, including the management of incoming updates within the translation software and the notification of relevant updates to WebDewey users. Functionalities will be implemented in the first quarter of 2016. I am going to prepare a how-to paper to introduce the new workflow options that will be available on this website around next EDUG meeting (April 25/26, 2016). Regards, Tina
