New project - Language Drivers
Supreme Council
Supreme Council


See User information
A new project has been assigned on OpenAmiga.org.

The project is about creating more Language Drivers.

"Since Release 2.1, AmigaOS has supported multiple languages and translations via locale.library. Release 4.0 saw the addition of extended character set support, enabling usage of languages in different character sets, not only on an OS level, but also on a per-application basis."

Currently chris is working on Welsh language support.

Other developers are welcome to join the project to create drivers for their preferred languages.

That could be one of the trickier ones.

You'd need to invent an 8-bit charset (x-amiga-klingon) and add it to l:custom-character-sets as well as writing the charset driver.

The Unicode character codes are here: http://www.evertype.com/standards/csur/klingon.html

If you use an appropriate font (eg Code2000) the charset driver should remap the Unicode characters into the invented charset (I think this is correct, I'm not au fait with charset drivers). The charset should obviously contain the usual 7-bit ASCII and the Klingon characters in the remainder.

Then you have fun with getting translations for weekdays, month names etc.

Maybe you need a whatevertheirplanetiscalled.country file (and flag images) as well, as I'm sure their value separators will be unique.

This is one for somebody who likes Star Trek, a challenge, and isn't me

Maybe a translation to Quenya (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elvish_languages) would be also great. :D
