Translation lists for the database
2 April 2020
Without visitors during the afternoon hours, there is more time for work behind the scenes. One of those invisible tasks is working on the new database and the new website. We aim to launch an English site in addition to the Dutch website within a few months. Before that, there is still an incredible amount to be translated. In recent weeks we have been examining the thesauri, lists of terms that appear in the database and have now been translated into English, German and French. A huge task to translate the endless lists of keywords such as materials, techniques, colours. In particular, the technical terms often form a stumbling block, which we will find out with some study. When the new site is launched, the translations will automatically appear in the object descriptions, but they will also act as a keyword in the search form. We are already looking forward to the result, although it will be tough task for the time being.
