I try to translate the "Labdoo Wiki" page, which is under "The Labdoo Social Network - How It Works"

In the Wiki translation instruction, it says => In the field 'Original book', select the original page or book that you are translating. Does it mean I shall select "The Labdoo Social Network - How It Works" and it will auto match the Labdoo Wi and shown on the side bar when people search for other translation? (pls. refer to the attached picture for better explanation.

The best person to answer that is Jordi :) He prepared some help pages to explain translation of wiki pages

A remark:
I worked on some wiki pages and I found out that assigning a translation to the original book (your question) is only possible for the root page, the start of a book, by selecting "It's a translation"..

When you add child pages to a book you are not able to assign that child page to the original (source) text of the original child page. So for to create a translated child page press "Add a child page", add title, select language and select "It's the original" (even if it is a translation of another child page). In the beginning it confused me. Maybe Jordi knows another approach, but this worked well for me :)

Thanks, Ralf!

Yes, I am looking for the answer for a user to be able to click on a certain page and be able to find the foreign translation. Since I'd like to be in sync with English as much as possible.

Jordi, do you have an answer for this? Thanks !
