Georgian Translation - arabuli - 2011-05-28 05:56


I'm trying to translate XBMC in Georgian language but I have problem, when I translate something, words are not shown in XBMC and there are only unknown symbols. What can I do to solve this problem?

Kind regards,

you probably need to change the font to something that handles your characters.

Also you need to have the strings.xml in utf-8

See the wiki for more information..


This is a tool that might help you:

Thanks for reply.

strings.xml is in utf-8. One Georgian character is visible in XBMC but main menu items are shown in ambiguous characters. Take a look at this screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/ImAYx.jpg

those are upper case letters (evil jezz_x!), maybe that's relevant?

without more info nobody can answer your. for starters, try my suggestion - is it the upper case letters that errors or is it all chars which errors? does your font have georgian chars?

Hi spiff, thanks for reply. I've changed strings.xml encoding to UTF-8 (I did same in langinfo.xml) and now it shows some words. But XBMC has strange problems with Georgian language. I don't know why but it shows word Settings in main menu (http://i.imgur.com/2tYft.png) and can't show it in settings window (http://i.imgur.com/1lDU6.jpg)

Are you asking about XMBC font?
I don't know which font XBMC is using.

I guess the currently used fonts do not fully support Georgian characters. The same problem exists for Cyrillic characters. Default Confluence skin is OK but some other like Aeon-Nox or Transparency do not display non-English characters in some items, like currently played song info in Aeon-Nox or RSS-feed in Transparency.

Thanks for answer. Is it possible to fix that? Can XBMC do something about it? Or there is no fix for that?
