Clarifications

Some of the definitions on this page may still not be clear to anyone new to project planning. I'd suggest that you include some external links, such as adding http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_Cost_breakdown_Structure somewhere in the CBS definition. Currently you seem to have CBS pointing to Cost Breakdown Structure, which points to CBS :-)

Before I release this for translation, can you tell me why you used span IDs? If it is to make linking easier from other pages, the translators may wish to change the markup slightly, but I don't want to do this if it breaks something elsewhere. If we know now we can plan for it.

Why span IDs? Are there other ways? ;)

I think (atm) there are only links internal on that page but linking there from other pages could very well appear in the future.

Links to external info *could* be a good thing but it has to be relevant to the way the term is used in plan. Your example is ok, I think, but expanding the my definition a little might be better in this case. They are very rudimentary atm.

"Are there other ways? ;)" I was thinking more of "Are there other reasons?" :-) In that case, I'll get Claus onto this - he is the expert at getting span ids that work well with translations. It will probably mean a minor edit to them.

The links question - that's why I didn't go ahead and add them. I wasn't confident that I would get it right. Let's release what we've got and you can go back in and improve the definitions, making sure there are no circular references, as soon as you have time.

OTOH, it may be that it's only in things like broken paragraphs that the span ids need to be different. If you see Danish or Ukrainian translations appearing without any changes being made, you know they were not necessary. Claus_chr and Yurchor are experts.
