Help with russian translation needed

Post by themat » Fri Dec 21, 2007 4:01 pm

Hello,

Some days ago I got our Russian translation for our website and as I tried to implement it to joomfish!, some strange error appears:

With most of the translated text, everything works out fine, yet with some input fields the html code is not generated properly. Usually the Russian characters are defined by ьϿ&#1011. Especially in the browser title bar (and in some titles of the "News" Module) the original "&" becomes replaced with the alternative tag "&" what confuses the browser:

In concrete terms:

ьϿ&#1011  gives a proper result
ьϿ&#1011 returns "ьϿ&#1011" in the live site

I cannot figure out the problem, does anyone have an idea? You could see the phenomenon in the browser title bar on my site, when selecting "Russian" (http://www.independentwings.com). The same habit occurs for some titles and subtitles in the "News" Module. You could identify them by selecting "Russian" on the site an then looking for English text components. (I didn't translate this strings for the reason of the malfunction.)

Regards, Martin

Hello Martin,
Are you Russian or someone helped you to translate content of your website in Russian? There are many mistakes.
