Hi Ilmari,

Thank you for the feedback.

I have added translation markups to all twelve of the new pages and marked them for translation. I've also marked the index page for translation.

Please let me know if you spot anything relating to translation that I have implemented in a sub-optimal way.

It looked fine, thanks for the work. I added {{#translation:}} suffixes to the macro page links, so they will always point to the pages in the relevant language.

I have completed creating English versions of the wiki pages that include the Basic macros from Chapter 13 of the Calc Guide.

The index page for these files can be found at I have added some translation markups to this index page . However, I've never done this before. Would it be possible for Ilmari (or somebody else with the appropriate knowledge) to have a look at this page and advise if any of these translation markups are inappropriate?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks Ilmari.

I expect there to be twelve of these pages. I plan to create all of the pages first and then add the translation markups afterwards.

I will confirm via the email list when I am finished. Maybe you or somebody else with suitable knowledge would give the pages a quick check at that point, just to make sure that I have not done anything wrong in terms of adding the translation markups.

The technical details of the pages shouldn't need much checking as they are mostly copied directly from the published 7.0 Calc Guide.

The translation needs to be prepared by hand according to these instructions:

In this case it is a bit tedious as you ideally have to include many snippets in the translation (while excluding the content and markup that should remain untranslated). I guess the argument names in the description section could be included in the translation. You would also want to include every single comment in the example code block.

I have created one of the pages at Do I need to do anything to prepare it for translation?

Hi Ilmari,

Could you give me some advice with regards to the wiki please?

I am in the process of updating Chapter 13 of the Calc Guide to change its emphasis away from macro programming. There are some useful LibreOffice Basic macro code snippets which are to be removed from the document, but I do not want to lose them completely. Therefore, I propose to add them to the wiki – the page at seems a good place to start.

Two questions arise:

1. Can I view a list of all the pages currently in the area?

2. What would be the best material for me to read to understand the
    markup that should be included to format the code snippets nicely?

I think we found that lang set to vbnet is the best for syntax highlighting, so put your code inside a block like:

<syntaxhighlight lang="vbnet">
