Drat, posted this from my gmail address and forgot it wasn't  
registered with these lists. Sorry, Further delay! :(

Maria, sorry it has taken me so long to answer this. I've copied it  
to the U-W mailing list so others can help with the login question.

Hmm, many sites have a facility to request your password again.  
<looks> But I can't see one in the Ubuntu Wiki. Does anyone here know  
how you go about requesting your password be sent to you, or  
requesting a new password? Is the Ubuntu Wiki login the same as the  
Launchpad one?

There are two ways, basically.

1. Copy the source for the page (browser: Show Source) and edit it in  
a text editor. ignore anything you can't see in the normal browser  
window for that page (tags like <b>, <br>).

2. Use a translation editor which converts HTML (webpage code) to a  
format easier to edit. I know Omega-T is designed to do this, but its  
display isn't that easy to edit, in my opinion. If I find an easier  
option, I'll post it to i18n-mentor.

Maria, I'll grab the source for the main U-W webpage and mail it to  
you. If you open it in a word processor or other text editor, it may  
hide the tags for you. In any case, have a go at translating the bits  
that aren't formatting, the titles and sentences which show in the  
normal browser window for that webpage. Don't change anything else.  
Do part of the page, then send it to me, and I'll give you feedback,  
point out any bits you've missed or shouldn't have done, and explain  
why. Will that help?

If I have time, I'll do a wiki page on how to translate webpages, in  
our U-W wiki.
