I have another difficulty with timelines, this time with regard to their
use in multiple languages.
Why is it, that although I can easily build a timeline in English, I
cannot do so in French?
I have already rebuilt and refreshed all my semantic data. (I found it
full of the most appalling mistakes after I triggered an upgrade of the
database structure with SMW 1.4.3.) After that, I was able to restore
tables in French. But timelines will not appear.
Here are two versions of an article where I am attempting to build a
timeline. The title is "Planet" in English and "Planète" in French. What
I seek to do is create a timeline of the discovery of all objects that I
have written up that have the Sun as a primary, sorted by date of
discovery (except for the earth itself and all objects "known to the
ancients") and listing the astronomer(s) involved and also the origin of
the name and the celestial class(es) to which the object belongs.
Here is the article in English:
And in French:
One thought I had: Several of the article and property names have
accents and other diacriticals. Does that matter? If so, how do I work
around that issue?
Any help would be appreciated--especially since I have registered my
wiki in all its languages.
