Thanks Sdenka, I already commented on the ticket:


We still need a way to actually switch between languages, for now  
there is only the single QuickGuides folder:


There is indeed some "trouble" with the non-ASCII file names. They are  
in latin1 I believe. How did you create the zip, and on what system?

But you do not have to re-upload them, I already did that. The  
following is meant for the other developers ;)

The default unpacker on the Mac creates garbage:


The "unzip" command line tool creates escape sequences:


With a small script I was able to rename them to utf-8:


But I'm not sure this will work across platforms? Maybe we should use  
utf-8 quoting:


I uploaded the renamed and quoted guides to the ticket.

Or maybe we do not want to use the file names for the displayed name  
at all? Maybe we need a text file listing the titles and file names.  
That might solve the order problem (currently #suggestedOrder is only  
for English titles).

Currently, replacing the English guides with Sdenka's fails, because  
#defaultOrderIn: does not deal with the case that none of the guides  
in #suggestedOrder is found. Easy to fix but then the order is  
basically random I guess.

Also, not sure about replacing / translating the index.

Would be good if someone could work on this, now that we have  
translations we should make them available to kids.
