Hello Peter and Rob,
I thought about Peter when I first read Rob's message. Perhaps, if Rob does
the first review of the chapters of the base guide 6.4 then Peter can take
them for their second review and make sure good English is used. That way
both tasks would be fulfilled- database errors would be removed and English
would become good. As for figures I agree with Jean. We should do all this
in the v6.4 not v6.2. We should let v6.2 be published because Base Guide
has not been updated since v4.0 I think. I have already prepared the drafts
of first 6 chapters of v6.4. If Rob can take it for its first review it
would be great. I think Peter, you are busy with Draw guide. Can you manage
the two at once? As for time I think we have much for v6.4. v7.0 is going
to be released in August, so if we complete v6.4 by end of July, and it
would have no or only little mistakes, then I think it wouldn't take more
than a month to update it to v7.0. It depends how base changes in going to

I do not have the Base skills as I have only cretics very simple databases
in past. However, I think my English skills are good and could always help.
The question is time available.

Jean you mentioned figures for Base in one message. To me figures should
always be numbered and captioned. That way it makes it easier to refer to

Hi Rob,

seems I don't understand enough English to get the right words for it.
Could be it is only a problem in the translated book. I have had a look
at the German original and couldn't find any problematic content there.
I already thought it was a translation problem... so I hope that some
people with database knowledge will check the text, and not only look at
grammar errors.

Best regards,


For several years, we've been trying to find people who have the
knowledge, the time, and the English skills to review and improve the
text. I questioned some things in the book while I was reviewing
chapters, but my knowledge is limited to quite simple databases.

If you (or anyone else) can help with this, we would all be very glad.
But perhaps not holding up publication of the v6.x book; instead,
working toward a much improved book for LO v7.
