    Announcing the MSDN & TechNet Library Machine Translation Project for SharePoint Products and Technologies

    • 2 Comments

    The Office Team is glad to announce our participation in the MSDN and TechNet Library Machine Translation Pilot for SharePoint Products and Technologies.

    The MSDN and TechNet Libraries are major resources for developers and IT professionals around the world who use Microsoft tools, products, and technologies. Both libraries contain a bounty of technical information. This includes sample code, documentation, technical articles, and reference guides. In order to provide content to all developers, regardless of locale, we are piloting a test of machine-translating our MSDN and TechNet Library content. The pilot period is scheduled from 11/26/2007 to 1/19/2008.

    This pilot will make use of two new Web presentation technologies: bilingual side-by-side display and translation Wiki.

    • Bilingual side-by-side display allows users to see English and translated content side by side on the page. It has just been released as a feature in Windows Live Translator for translation and display of entire Web pages. Our pilot will use a version of this technology optimized for MSDN and TechNet content.
    • Translation Wiki functionality, which allows authorized users to directly edit machine translated content and other users to make suggestions for translation improvements, was first released as part of the Brazilian MSDN translation Wiki for Visual Studio 2005. Office will be only the second user of this technology.

    Office SharePoint Server 2007 SDK and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK (Wiki beta)

    Try out this beta version of the machine-translated Office SharePoint Server 2007 SDK and Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 SDK. Add your suggestions and feedback with the Wiki editor.

    Office SharePoint Server TechNet (side-by-side beta)

    Try out this beta version of the machine-translated Office SharePoint Server TechNet materials, in a side-by-side view with English, and provide feedback in the site survey.

    You can find more information about the Project here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/office/pilots

    We thank you in advance for your feedback and comments

    Catching-up with blogging

    • 1 Comments

    What a shame that I write my first November blog post on 11/14. The last three weeks have been quite busy for me and I barely had a chance to think about blogging. I've been writing a couple articles and a book chapter :). It really is an exciting time for me, but I must confess my poor blog was only a part of my to-do list and today I decided it was time to blog again.

    Here is a summary of some resources that I missed to blog about in the previous weeks:

    1. Check out the new Office Client Developer Content and Resources team blog: If you are a VBA fan or love doing Office Client development, this blog is a must stop. David Hale, Angela Chu-Hatoun, and the whole Office Client developer documentation group will be sharing information related to development with Word, Excel, Access, Outlook, PowerPoint, InfoPath and InfoPath Forms Services, Visio, OneNote, and Publisher.
    2. Microsoft Search Server 2008 SDK: Last week, the Office developer documentation team released a new SDK that provides object model and namespace documentation for the new Microsoft Enterprise Search Server 2008. You can find more details about Microsoft Search Server 2008 here.
    3. Arouet dot net by Stephanie Krieger: Stephanie is a very talented MVP and master gal of Office for PC and Mac. There's no one I've met so far that knows so much about Office end-user tricks and advanced documents as she does. Her blog has tons of articles and webcasts that can help you learn hidden tips and tricks in Office 2007. Stephanie is the author of the Advanced Microsoft Office Documents 2007 Edition Inside Out book. She is also the author of multiple Office Online training materials. Happily for us, we will start publishing new articles from Steph on MSDN soon!
    4. Open XML to DAISY XML Translator: Microsoft announced yesterday a project to create a "save as DAISY" plug-in for Word that will be available as a free download on SourceForge. Doug Mahugh has a great blog post explaining all the details.
    5. Word Content Controls in Visual Studio 2008: For those of you that have an interest in document templates that can bind to data, VSTO 3.0 has support for content controls and data binding to custom xml. Kathleen McGrath has a great post that explains the details in brief. You can also find a cool video on Channel 9. Exciting stuff!
    6. A little bit of Web humor and comics. I recently discovered David Salaguinto's "Office Offline" blog. David is a writer for Office Online and he is posting fun cartoons. This is my favorite one (so far):
