The Dorico 3.1.10 manual is now available in German, Japanese, French, and Italian, in addition to the existing English. This update replaces the existing 3.0.10 manuals in all languages.
The keen-eyed amongst you might spot that these manuals look a little different to the last release - especially the webhelp. The manuals team has been working incredibly hard on updating our documentation’s appearance and functionality, and I hope you agree they’ve done some brilliant stuff.
A few key things to look out for: on the webhelp, the titles of previous/next topics are now displayed at the bottom of each page, making it easier and clearer to navigate through sections. Related links are now in one section at the bottom. The search function has been improved, bringing the most relevant links to the top of search results more often. And key commands now appear in a lozenge, making them more visually obvious (and look a bit like a keyboard key).
Speaking of key commands - one reason why these translated manuals are available a bit later than hoped & planned is that we’ve been working behind the scenes to get automatically-generated language-specific key commands included in each relevant manual. Thanks to Ben Timms of the Dorico team and to the manuals team, this is now working. We have a bit more refining we’d like to do in terms of how they appear, but you should now find that every key command across each translated manual is correct for that language. Hooray!
