Is a word like "enpaĝiginda" correct?

If not, what words could I use to express this?

  • Could you provide an example? Formatting could have various ways of translating. Context would be a tremendous help here.

  • Sure. It will be use with internet pages. Like "That page doesn't follow the given structure, a formatting is needed". And I want to just have one or two words to create a shortcut.

  • formatting needed = aranĝenda

This is as aranĝo means layout in this context, and aranĝi is also pretigi (make ready). Maybe rearanĝenda.


I checked Komputeko, but I have a growing feeling that things are moved around and "developed". Having translated Joomla and related texts for a few years, we ended up using words like "formatigi" for the verb format. From there, one may think in different lines. Formatting is "enpaĝigi" but it totally depends on context, set and setting.

For layout we use "aspekto" or "trajtaro" depending on what the layout is really about. A general layout of things, like a page, would be aspekto while smaller stuff in a page, like the setup for text would be trajtaro.
