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

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.
