usually no... Apr 11, 2003

All these special files are automatically generated when the user creates a \"book\" with all chapters, so you are not suppoosed to translate them.



On the contrary, you are supposed to translate all index entries contained within the \"normal\" chapters, and they will be used then to generate the index again.
