BOW Key (3 Viewers)

No, Once created the MS name has an entity, which readers may wish to investigate, but you will note that I had already added a fresh sentence to the Manuscript-names entry.

I have created an Index of English Names of Type Species (search ZZZZ) as an aid to readers, and in the hope that it may prove useful to those workers contemplating nomenclatural changes. I would be pleased to receive suggestions, comments and necessary amendments.

I would like to do the same for french name. Could you show me what you did?
 
Jim, I’m sure that somewhere a cleverclogs has written a program that creates indexes/indices. However, all that lays well beyond my capabilities and pay-grade, although I could probably give the job to one of my grandchildren to resolve! I took the nineteenth-century route, and painstakingly went through my Key MS and manually input the names in alphabetical order (it took nearly four months to complete).

I don't understand everything but it seems interesting at first glance
 
Ah. Your name is mentioned with the IOC file so I assumed the French names /were/ 'your' names...
(I can use any file as long as there is a binomial column - after all, that's what Linnaeus invented them for)
 
I meant in the Multiling spreadheet, which has a tab named 'Sources' with acknowledgements, your name is there. But I see (only now) that in that tab are other main sources mentioned under 'FRENCH'.
I'll look but the last time I downloaded the file, my name wasn't mentioned

Ah ok, I'm in the end of the file

Thank you for this.
I noticed a few peculiarities:

This line seems to be two lines that were accidentally concatenated:
Kingfisher, White-breasted see Kingfisher, White-throated Kingfisher, White-rumped Caridonax fulgidus Caridonax

La Fresnaye's Vanga
seems an unorthodox spelling for Lafresnaye that I can't find anywhere (not in OD either), although I suppose it 's not wrong.

Bokmakiere seems unusual for Bokmakierie

Donaldson-Smith seems unusual for Donaldson Smith

'Spinetail. Great' has a separating period instead of a comma (computer programs notice these things)

Gorgetted - maybe better Gorgeted ?

Coronetted - maybe better Coroneted ?

Phebe seems unusual for Phoebe

Schrenk seems unusual for Schrenck (or von Schrenck)

HTH

I didn't understand his project so I was thinking of something completely different.
 
HTH, many thanks and appreciation for your list of “peculiarities” — I must remember to keep my eyes open when typing! You will see that I have adopted the typos and corrections. I prefer the alternatives Coronetted and Gorgetted — they look better! Similarly I keep La Fresnaye, mirroring The Key entries.
 
There's another two-in-one liner:
Pampafinch, Great Embernagra platensis Embernagra, Limnospiza Paradigalla, Long-tailed Paradigalla carunculata Lobopsis, Paradigalla

And another small thing:
Bellatrix. Lophorinus
have a period as separator, surprising my program.

edit:
another period-instead-of-comma:
Acanthurus. Sittasomus
