My client has sent me a document listing various WordStyle abbreviations in French and wants me to translate them into English. Is there any way I can get at a sort of help with the expansion of the French abbreviations and try to get the equivalent official English terms? My client is an ePublisher and he requires this to follow the instructions in his publication works.
The file has entries such as the ones given below:
"lfleg", "lfnum", "listfig", "motclegrp" and much more.
For "motclegrp", I guess it means group key word. But I am not lucky with others.
I just want the url's from where I can collect the information. Even expansions of the abbreviations will do.
Thanks in advance,
N.Raghavan

Let me explain my requirements Nov 5, 2004

Dear Esther,

I received your unedited reply to this topic of mine as Kudoz's email notification. I will not quote it here as you have subsequely removed the same from your posting.

Let me explain once again my problem. It has to do with the French abbreviations for the different wordstyle designations. Some I could make out. Others I could not. All I wanted was my colleagues' help in getting at a URL, where these presumably standard abbreviations are listed, expanded and explained (in French of course). That's all. Once I get the expansions, there should be no problem in translating. Fact is, till now I have not had any contact with these instructions with WordStyles, as I am not into publishing.

Thanks in advance,
N.Raghavan
