I haven't had any experience with translating, but if you're trying to get a LaTeX file to compile, you just need to keep searching for missing packages. jarticle.cls is a legitimate class, but since you are translating it, renaming it to article.cls is a good first step. I think you need to double-check that you have all of the files necessary to compile it. LaTeX can pull in files from other directories. If the author can assure you of this, then it's just a matter of finding the style files. Under Linux, I can do this: $ sudo apt-file search proof.sty texlive-latex-extra: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/akktex/akkmathproof.sty texlive-latex-extra: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/lkproof/proof.sty texlive-latex-extra: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/piff/newproof.sty texlive-latex-extra: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/stex/sproof/sproof.sty texlive-latex-extra: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/stex/sproof/sproof.sty.ltxml texlive-math-extra: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/synproof/synproof.sty texlive-science: /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/computational-complexity/ccproof.sty So, proof.sty is in the texlive-latex-extra package. And I would install that (hoping that the proof.sty the author used is the same as the one mentioned above). Alternatively, you can try to find .sty files in CTAN. Of course, the author can download a proof.sty and modify it and put it earlier in the search path. Hence my suggestion to make sure you have everything needed to compile. If possible, ask the author to compile it and send the output from latex to you (i.e., what is sent to the screen). You will then see which files are being pulled from system directories and which from his/her home directories. And then, explicitly ask for those files. For example, this is running latex on a file I was just working on: $ latex file.tex This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013/Debian) restricted \write18 enabled. entering extended mode (./file.tex LaTeX2e <2011/06/27> Babel <3.9h> and hyphenation patterns for 4 languages loaded. (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/powerdot/powerdot.cls Document Class: powerdot 2014/01/01 v1.5 powerdot presentation class (HA) (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/xkeyval/xkeyval.sty (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/xkeyval/xkeyval.tex (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/generic/xkeyval/keyval.tex))) (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/article.cls Document Class: article 2007/10/19 v1.4h Standard LaTeX document class (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/size10.clo)) (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/size11.clo) (/usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/tex/latex/geometry/geometry.sty ... Obviously, the files in /usr/share/texlive/... were installed via my Ubuntu package manager and not manually into my home directory. Hope this helps! Ray
