Hello everyone (and sorry for x-posting), I want to call your attention to a volunteer project that has been very active in the last couple of weeks, aiming to collectively produce and distribute phrasebooks to Refugees arriving to Europe and elsewhere. The project's main web-site is http://refugeephrasebook.de/ The different versions of the phrasebook are being published in Wikibooks https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Refugee_Phrasebook And discussion is mostly happening on facebook's refugeephrasebook group and some etherpads.
Currently the project is struggling to produce, small, readable paper phrasebooks. And each version contains several (around 7), in different alphabets. As a quick'n' dirty solution, collaborators have been using web-to-print to produce the PDFs and print. However this results in, large, ugly, barely readable collections of pages. (See both mw content and reslting PDFs in en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Refugee_Phrasebook#Print_versions)
I (but i might be wrong) think that creating a LaTex/LuaTex/XeLatex template for Pandoc, that'd take in consideration the specificities of the print-output, could be a good solution, since original content is stored in mediawiki markup. Then one would only need to use Pandoc to convert from mw to PDF, using the template. Right?
My knowledge of LaTex is very limited to create such template, however i am sure some of you might be able to do this easily.
Please reply if you are interested in helping out, or have some idea on how to do it.
