Problem with Russian translation...

Post by Tohaman » Tue Jul 18, 2006 6:50 pm

When I choose a russian language, I see some symbols, but it's not russian letters. Maybe it need a some font?

on my hx4700 all translated strings look OK.
But there is another problem: Russian words are much longer than English.
And in menu bar some buttons on toolbar are invisible.
Could you please also ask your translator to try to shorten some words in menu?

Only the toolbar?

On my pocket it's only about toolbar. All menus and Dialogs look Ok.
Fonts may vary, but word "Instrumenty" (tools) is too long anyway...
BTW, in all standard applications (like pocket word etc.) those menus are translated as (transliteration from russian):
View: VID
Tools: SERVIS
Which is much shorter and is somewhat like standard in russian localizations.

P.S. Some strings are still not translated.

The fact the language file is a plain text was like a thunderbolt for me :)
Now I've customized all strings according to my personal taste.
Here you can see two files.
The first one includes no-doubt changes which must be done.
The second one is my personal choice. These changes may be discussed and I don't insist on it.
