Bart,

Could you publish a diff of the old vs new versions, please? I think that would be very useful. If you have txt for both, I can diff them, too.

Thanks,
Robin

I have a quick look at the new version. I think it will not take much time to make a new translation. But I don't have a pdf editor
Just a small regret: it seems there is no link to the demonstation video

Laurent,

The easiest way would be to rework your translation and submit it to Bart for pdf-ifying... ;)

That's what I did lol

there is a tool called cute pdfwriter which you can use to generate pfd files its freeware you install it make your text in wathever editor you like, then select print and instead of you normal printer you select cut pdfwiter tada you just made you first pfd!
The Bible and several other self help or enlightenment books cite the Seven Deadly Sins. They are: pride, greed, lust, envy, wrath, sloth, and gluttony. That pretty much covers everything that we do, that is sinful... or fun for that matter. - Dave Mustaine

I'm used to using pdfcreator.

What I wanted to say is the layout of this new version is a bit more complicated and I'll need a Word, lyx.....version to work on. Or else I'll give Bart only a text version without the image insertions...

Laurent

Update: Sorry Stijn I have read your post diagonaly,I will give a try to this tool

Could everyone who made a Dilucot translation please wade through his text one final time, revise it accordingly to this new English text and to the principles discussed earlier on in this thread? Please submit a final version in plain text format, with more or less the same structure as the English version.

Yes, plain text versions please.

I will set up Google Docs with a comparison of the old vs new version of Dilucot. I hope to find time for doing that tonight.

I have uploaded new versions for the English Dilucot, containing a few minor fixes (typos and a copyright notice, removed blank pages), and for the Dutch version (now conform with the English version)

Kind regards,
Bart.

A french english-conform version could be delivered at the end of this week-end.
A french speaking reviewer would be welcome, Wim;) ?

I have put up the French version of Dilucot.

Still needs translation for the caption of 2 of the illustrations.

Laurent, my French is good enough to fully comprehend the text, but not to correct grammar and spelling mistakes, should there be any left. I'm counting on Wim for that.
But en tout cas, I think you've done a splendid job. The text reads very fluent and transparent. It's ecellent work :thumbup:

There are Italian and Spannish versions of Unicot in the pipeline, and a German version of both Uni- and Dilucot.

Kind regards,
Bart.

There are at present so many unfinished tasks that I have decided not to start anything else before the current work is done. However, one of these projects in the production of a series of instructional videos:

1- Bevel correction with a Coticule:
(deals with rubing slurry -tilting the slurry stone- , half strokes, pressure, pre-dulling, the AHT, etc. - every bit of information one needs to do the job with a Coticule.

2-The Dilucot strategy for sharpening

3-The Unicot method.

These videos will contain a mostly off-screen voice, explaining what is shown in the various shots, some of which will be close-ups, some will be moving diagrams, most will be shots that show the techniques being used.

We need a screenwriter to adapt the written instructions of the articles into spoken language and put it all into a storyboard that tells an engrossing story.
I've sollicited Matt to be the director of this project, but I'm sure we could use a capable mind to start with preproduction work.
Here is a good informational source that deals about making documentaries:
http://pov.imv.au.dk/Issue_13/section_5/artc1A.html
If you're interested in helping out with that, I suggest that you read it and contact Matt for further coordination of tasks.
The shooting of the footage can be done by various people at various locations all over the world. We can easily share footage files with Dropbox. But we can't shoot anything without a good storyboard.

If it sounds like fun, your help will be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Bart.

You know... My friend Whitebar used to be a professional product photographer. I'm thinking that he and I could work together to do some of this. I'll ask him if he wants to tackle it with me as I think the two of us might be able to film and hone more easily than anyone by themselves... I'll get back to you after I speak with him (we live within a very short drive of each other).

And if you just want me to write, I'd be happy to do that too.

Kind regards,

Paul

Hmm, my workstation has been down and will probably be in next 3 weeks (motherboard and/or VGA replacement - brand new! what crap they do these days :sneaky: ) so I won't be able to do anything, should any footage be recorded soon. However - how about:
  • all the basic strokes
  • and slurry behaviour (will call for good lighting setup)?

regards,
Matt
