Subject: Problems with the hebrew translation
From: Incognito (incognito_kind_at_hotmail.com)
As you may or may not know, there are problems in the hebrew translation.
First of all, the hebrew fonts are not set on the right ASCII keys, but I
fixed it by seting the encoding on the BDF files to the right ones. with
very low means (Visual Basic). I'm attaching to this letter a working fnt
file combining "hebrew-small.bdf" and "atari-small.bdf". I also found a
program, FONmaker, which converts ttf files to bdf, but I still havn't found
the full version so it's currently useless. The second problem with the
translation is the lng file. Hebrew is a right to left language so in order
to see the menus currectly it should be written backwards. the lng file is
not written that way. Secondly, it is translated poorly and partially.
Now, I want to fix those problems but I don't have linux or whatever it is
that you are using (mac?). I can translate the menus, but I don't know how
to convert the lang file. So if someone could show me how to do it in
windows with perl or even do it himself, that would be great.
