You don’t need to rebuild the books; just continue building them in new
languages, as Andrew advised. They have promised to get those unwanted
statements removed before you publish. You do not want to try to
remove them yourself, believe me! It is tricky and time-consuming unless
you can write a “script” that will do it automatically, which I don’t
know how to do. That is the job of the Bloom team.
I am curious about a couple of things:
- In the Big Books and Basic Books collections, are you sure the
original books—the ones you tried to copy into a new collection—do
NOT contain the “Adapted from” statement?
- When you copy one of the Big or Basic books to a new collection,
is this second collection a Source collection or a Vernacular
collection? If you’re willing to try it just one more time, you
could create a new collection in Bloom. Make sure this new
collection is a Source collection, not a Vernacular one. Then try
copying a Big or Basic book into it. One of Andrew’s replies
indicated that books copied into a new folder behave differently
based on this distinction.
