Kannada translation, how to Unicode!

Post by leenark » Wed Nov 21, 2007 7:35 am

Hi Vish and Team,

I have completed Kannada language file translation.
I translated english.php file to equivalent Kannada words.
I copied the english.php file and edited using Nudi text editor.
Do I need to convert it to Unicode? If yes, what is the best way to do it?
please let me know the best way to do it.


Thanks,
Leena

Thanks,

I tried converting my word file using utf conversion tool given in one of the links , I see bizzare characters. It is not readable.

If I want to redo it. How to do that in utf-8/unicode? How to start writing in any language other than english in Unicode format?


Thanks,
Leena

First copy the content of the word file into the text editor, then save as utf8 NO BOM. Easier.

NEVER use Word for that kind of stuff.  ;)

Mac apps as TextWrangler let you start as utf8.

Hi Vish,

Thanks for offering help.
Yeah I tried links from other replies to get word doc convertrd to Unicode but didnot work.

I am converting word by word into unicode and saving it in dreamweaver, just wanted to know if I am doing it correct.

Converting to Unicode hardway that I am doing: I opened kannada translation file in word, copy only
kannada words and paste it into "BARAHA DIrect" convert chars to kannda
ANSI, copy output as "unicode"(copy special) and paste it in unicode
document (dreamweaver)

Thanks,
Leena

Hi,
Yes, Kannada language translation is over. I have tested it for my site, have also integrated it in my prdcution site and works fine.
Mr. Shashikiran showed interest in getting it tested and ready according to Joomla standards. I have mailed language file to him (2 months back). Been trying to PM him since then regarding this issue. Haven't heard from him.
Shashikant, do you want to answer this? If Shashikant is unable to test it can anybody else help?
or if modertaors can tell me what are the steps to get this file ready fto release on extensions.joomla.org

Thanks
