It is rather simple. I download the files from the DDTP. They
include only Descriptions and the MD5SUM of the corresponding
English description. I read them in, convert them to another
charset (needed only for languages that have no UTF-8 locale),
add some HTML tags and write the to the pages.
Problems can only be caused by the
fact that I might assume a wrong encoding of the DDTP files or
if I do mistakes while adding the HTML tags.
Which one it is I try to find out currently.
One can obtain the used files from
