Drupal Commons- Content-rich community websites

drupal-commonsDrupal Commons is a ready-to-use solution for building either internal or external communities. It provides a complete social business software solution for organizations.

Drupal Commons helps organize content into topic groups with blog, discussion, and document, wiki, and event content types. It also allows users to create relationships with each other in order to follow each other’s activities on a site. Authenticated users can view a personalized dashboard containing content from all their subscribed groups.

Drupal Commons provides freedom from the limitations of proprietary social software. Based on the hugely-popular Drupal Web CMS, Drupal Commons adds a complete layer of social business features that are ready-to-use on installation, and which don’t suffer from the constraints of proprietary alternatives.

Why social business software or community project required?

  • Increase productivity of skilled employees both within and outside of the enterprise by getting solutions from everywhere.
  • Need to share ideas to accelerate innovation.
  • Streamline communications and break down the walls of location.
  • Participation and conversation beyond corporate boundaries to infuse knowledge and expertise into organizations.
  • Keep customers informed and get in touch faster and at lower cost.
  • Intranet for organizations, Universities, schools etc.

Why Drupal Commons?

Drupal Commons provides a rich set of features from which you can choose to construct your social business software site to meet the needs of your community, including:

  • Users with rich profiles
  • LDAP Integration
  • Groups, with varying access control
  • Friend relationships, enabling users to follow the activity of people they work with
  • List of recent activity within a group or across all groups to which a user belongs
  • Recent blog or micro blog posts in subscribed-to groups
  • Tags -  along with tag clouds and content listing by tag
  • RSS feeds for group activity
  • Content bookmarks
  • Site analytics
  • Faceted search with filters
  • Email updates on new content

Advantage of Drupal Commons

  • Drupal Commons is safe to use: license-safe and technology-safe and Drupal is a very secure software platform.
  • Drupal is free from pricing penalties
  • A user (organization) does not need to already be using Drupal as their main website platform before they can deploy and use Drupal Commons.
  • Drupal (Commons) is SEO-friendly.

Social Business is a mandate which Drupal can satisfy

  • The community that your organization serves wants to interact – with each other, and with you. Your organization can nurture and grow with this community if you can provide the infrastructure. Two things need to be combined in this infrastructure: a CMS with Web 2.0 capabilities, like blogs, tagging, etc., plus the social features users are accustomed to, such as groups, project spaces, and status activity postings.
  • Drupal combines all these capabilities into a single, free package. It accomplishes this through the power of open source, which provides speedy technical advancement from the community with the no-cost licensing model of free software.

Drupal Commons communities

  • Symantec feeds its corporate community – Symantec created its community site to create closer connection with customers of its commercial business products.
  • CNN adds citizen journalism – Organizations facing structural change in their industry are among the first to recognize the shift to social publishing – because they must.
  • Intel – Developer Program
  • Sony Ericsson Labs
  • New York Senate
  • Dat.gov.uk
  • Verizon Wireless

“Copy and Paste” of Design doesn’t Accomplish Multilingual Desktop Publishing!!

“Copy and Paste” of Design doesn’t Accomplish Multilingual Desktop Publishing!!

dtp Translating a user manual or a marketing collateral piece into the target language does not mean that the product is ready to serve the market. It’s only the half challenge, and then comes the Desktop Publishing, a last phase of any localization project. A simple “Copy and Paste” of design will not do it right. Desktop Publishing in multiple languages can be very challenging in regards of using right software, platform, and adept DTP personnel. It may require necessary guidelines and right process to be adopted when designing documents are intended for localization.

As a Multilingual Desktop Service Provider, Webdunia has developed a comprehensive DTP process from pre-processing the document to post-processing and quality checks for the best results. Furthermore, Our DTP specialists work in all formats and platforms and are skilled in multilingual publishing.

Understanding the Process
Multilingual Desktop Publishing comprises of 6 major steps, these are:
• Extraction of source language text for translation in a translatable format that is readable to translators e.g., Word, RTF, or TXT format.
• Localization of source language text into the desired target language
• Insertion of translated text into the target language version of the document
• Adjusting and formatting of localized text to match the original; complying with target-language standards. Features like hyphenation, punctuation, page breaking, adjustment of text elements for complete display, table of content and index may need to be generated. Also, if there are hyperlinks and inline images, they may have to be restored.
• DTP quality assurance checks
• Generation of PostScript and PDF files for online and print publication

For the successful completion of the DTP process there are some essential rules and guidelines which take under close consideration followed to avoid many problems. These guidelines are especially crucial if the same source document will be translated into multiple target languages. The adjustment of the source document layout may become an imperative to keep costs and lead time down.

• DTP translation from English to any other foreign language take up 30% more space, so the page layout needs to have adequate white space for increasing or decreasing text lengths. It’ll help DTP experts to maintain consistency in font size, characters, and line spacing. Also, allows them to add new pages if require.
• Use of style sheet and paragraph style helps a foreign typesetter to keep layout and position of text and images consistent across the document.
• It is advisable to use simple fonts that can support all the characters of the target language; adopting fancy font families may replace characters that will further cause text inaccuracy. Maximum use of OpenType fonts reduces the cross-platform conversion issues.
• Share all the necessary source files including fonts, graphs, charts, which are used to create the original document. If layers with text and images are used to create unique effects, it is crucial to provide native files in an editable format in order to well-develop the document in the target language.
• Design of the document should be kept simple and light weight. High resolution images may give a great visual deal to a document but heavy load of images can present big challenges in the DTP process and make it more lengthy and expensive.
• Not all icons and images are understood in the same way by readers from different countries, cultures, and languages. Images, symbols, gestures, and colors should be wisely selected while creating the document to ensure that they are not inappropriate or offensive to your global readers. For instances: “red color” is associated with both love and war; “thumbs-up” gestures is usually apprehend as “well-done” but in some countries it may be constructed as an inflammatory insult.

Get your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERPs) System Localized

Get your Enterprise Resource Planning (ERPs) System Localized

erp localization Enterprise Resource Planning (ERPs) system is one of your key IT assets to automate business practices and streamlining processes.

ERPs Localization means adapting ERPs software to different languages and regional variances. It is the process of translating an ERPs product /manual in other languages for adapting the language for a specific country or region. There are various ERP packages available and are well known as SAP, Oracle , Tally etc.

ERPs localization is much more different from other kinds of localization tasks since there are different modules which do not present a cohesive picture as software strings do. While it is easier to decipher software functionality by looking at the localizable strings, it is not so in the case of ERPs strings.

There are different modules, and so different containers which hold the strings. Generally, since these strings concatenate to create a full scenario, they can connect in more ways than one, and that poses a challenge. Also, ERPs has many different departments catered, which means there are hundreds of different scenarios in which these strings may be presented, resulting in an increased challenge for localizers.

Our team has been working for a number of projects involving localization of Financial, Process and Publishing & Packaging related software. We have localized it all, desktop software, web-apps, UA/UI websites using various types of forms and billing and metering systems. Our decade long experience provides Webdunia, the most suitable status for partnering with major ERPs providers and other organizations using business related software for their Localization/Translation needs.

We completed ERPs translation projects for various companies around the globe. We have recently assisted one of our clients with ERPs software/manual Translation, Review and Quality Assurance. The project entailed over 140,000 words requiring almost 1.5 months of skilled and experienced localization team of translators, reviewers and engineers to work on the ERPs translation project.

Our ERPs translation team consists of translators, reviewers and QA professionals was responsible for adapting all portions of the translated content. Simultaneously, our project managers ensured completion of all ERPs translation and software localization work on time, our team delivered the project back to our client meeting the deadline with utmost quality.
