The Contributor Guide is extremely helpful and I deeply appreciate that
someone --presumably Jean--invested the time and energy to create it. I
would just like a little bit of clarification.
Chapter 2 provides guidelines for indexing. On page 11, the guidelines
say: "The translators have requested that we do NOT create index entries
that surround words or phrases in the text. Instead, we need to create
entries that are embedded before or after the words or phrases to be
included in the index."
What is the rationale for not creating index entries that surround words
or phrases? How does this help the translators?
Then, in the next paragraph, it says "Either highlight the word or
phrase to add to the index or place the cursor at the beginning of the
This appears to contradict the previous paragraph, where it says to not
highlight entire words and phrases. What should the guideline be?
Two lines later, it says: "DO NOT simply accept the word or phrase shown
in the Entry box. Instead, first change the word or phrase in some way,
for example by typing a blank space at the end or (if appropriate)
changing an initial uppercase letter to lowercase.
This requirement seems puzzling. I am sure that there are good reasons
for changing the word or phrase and would appreciate some insight.
Thanks for whatever clarification people can provide.
