Description (last modified by hans) (diff)

Currently the first author remains the same also if somebody is doing a translation of the learning resource. Example: "Overview of Toolbox" was written by Teemu and I am doing the Estonian translation. Teemu remains the first author and this learning resource is not displayed on "My drafts" page. It means that when I want to continue working with the translation I have to use search to find that resource.

On "My drafts" page there are displayed some Latvian and Lithuanian translations of learning resource created by me. Nice to know, but these links are not useful for me because I am not able to work with these Latvian and Lithuanian resources. Teemu has probably a useless link to Estonian translation of "Overview of Toolbox".


I suggest that user who is creating the translation should become the first author of the translated version. (I know that with books the author remains the same for translation, but books are translated word-by-word. I think that in case of learning resources the person who has done the translation has much more freedom to make the translation in his own way and therefore he can be the main author for the translated version.)

In the users tagcloud both the translator and the original author should get more points when some resource is translated.
