12. मूल जांच 2

Introduction In this module, you will learn to do several other basic checks (Characters, punctuation, capitals, and repeated words. As in the first Basic Checks module (5. Basic checks 1), it is easiest to run these checks from the Assignments and Progress. However, if you want to check several books, you will need to use the Tools menu.

Before you start You have typed your translation in Paratext 9. Be sure that you have checked the chapter/verse numbers and markers, as described in 5. Basic checks 1, before continuing and that your administrator has either completed the setup of the checks or is with you to do the setup now.

Why this is important? Paratext 9 has eleven Basic Checks. You have already seen the first two, chapter/verse numbers and markers. This module will help you to find errors linked to characters, punctuation, capital letters and repeated words. Even though these errors may not influence the content of the text, correcting them makes the text easier to read.

What we are going to do: Most of the checks require that your administrator has completed an inventory. In this module you will

  • Confirm that someone has done the setup (or have the administrator do the setup)
  • do the Basic Checks
  • correct any errors.

12.1 Confirm the setup

Before you can run these other basic checks, someone must setup the check. Some checks require an inventory others require rules or settings.

caution

You can do most of the inventories, but only your Administrator can do the rules or settings.

12.2 Using inventories to setup

tip

These inventories show what is currently in your text, that is, both the good and the bad. You need to work through the inventory and tell Paratext 9 which elements are correct (valid) and which are errors (invalid).

Once you have finished the inventory you will be ready to do the check.

  1. From the ≡ Tab, under Tools > Checking inventories menu, choose the appropriate inventory (for example Character inventory).
  2. Click on an item in the list in the top pane.
    • The verses are shown in the bottom pane.
  3. For each item in the top pane, choose either Valid or Invalid.
  4. Repeat for each item.
  5. ओके पर क्लिक करें।
tip

Instead of using the mouse, you can use Ctrl + y to mark an entry as Valid or Ctrl + n to mark an entry as Invalid.
