Index:Bukvar staroslovenskoga jezika glagolskimi pismeni za čitanje crkvenih knjig.djvu[edit]

Ideally, the initial index should be on the relevant language domain Wikisource.

Which language is this work?ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 12:08, 20 January 2017 (UTC)

Hello! The work is in an increasingly obscure ikavian Chakavian dialect spoken in the Zadar area, though it is itself a type of textbook for learning the Croato-Glagolitic ecclesiastical tradition. My goal is to translate this work into English (as a textbook, so that the Glagolitic part would remain intact, perhaps with annotations). If I understand you correctly, I should create the Index page on the Croatian Wikisource ("Wikizvor"), and then create "Translation:…" pages as I go along on the English Wikisource? Now that would make more sense than what I understood from the directions. I will go ahead and create the pages on the Croatian Wikisource, and I might as well transcribe it there first. If this is all correct, I presume the Index I created here should be deleted? Inatan (talk) 13:19, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
On second, thought, I will skip the Croatian Wikisource for now. It uses a markedly different and rather deprecated markup system and has very little support, so I will save that idea for the future and focus on the English Wikisource. Inatan (talk) 14:29, 21 January 2017 (UTC)
You could also put it on the Multiligual wikisource, as you say the dialect is very obscure. And yes, generally the initial transcription should be on the language Wikisource that is most appropriate ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 16:44, 21 January 2017 (UTC)


  • Just a side note -- the scan seems to be missing pages 15-16. I updated the index with a pagelist and added a note. The scan needs to be updated with the missing pages before transcription/translation is attempted. --Mukkakukaku (talk) 21:31, 23 January 2017 (UTC)


Thank you all! I will upload update the scan at Multilingual Wikisource, and add pages 15-16 there from a Google Books version. Inatan (talk) 13:21, 24 January 2017 (UTC)

font size[edit]

Quotations in Victorian books are usually set to 92% instead of 83%. There is a template called {{fine}} for that, which is slightly larger text than {{smaller}}. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:16, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Wow, thank you! Inatan (talk) 20:17, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
If you ever forget the name, or need to look at a comparison chart, see the documentation for {{smaller}}. It shows a table with all the templates with samples of text size. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:21, 4 October 2017 (UTC)

Replied to your question on my talk page, but noting here that you may find the Help:Beginner's guide to typography useful until you gain familiarity with local formatting conventions. --EncycloPetey (talk) 20:35, 4 October 2017 (UTC)
