Thanks Daniel & Roger

In this context it's slightly complicated for me to translate that 1:1 ;)
I would suggest to use:

Code: Select all

  <FirmwareLoaderUI_MD9600 Text="Firmware (MD9600,RT90) aufspielen">
    <Controls>
		<Control Id="btnProgram" Text="OpenMD9600 Datei wählen &amp; Update." />
		<Control Id="btnSelectDonorFW"	Text="Offizielle Firmware wählen" />
    </Controls>
    <Commons>
		<Item Id="FmOnly" Text="Nur FM" />
		<Item Id="Warning" Text="Warnung" />
		<Item Id="Success" Text="Erfolgreich" />
		<Item Id="Error" Text="Fehler" />
		<Item Id="OfficialFWNotSelected" Text="Keine offizielle Firmware. DMR wird nicht unterstützt" />
		<Item Id="SelectOfficialFirmware" Text="Offizielle Firmware auswählen" />

		<Item Id="RadioNotConnected" Text="Gerät nicht verbunden, oder nicht im DFU Modus." />

I had a look at the MD9600-Firmware loader and revised the translation to improve the
meaning of the donor file. ;)

Sorry for the repeated change..

Thanks for update (BTW, it's better to have multiple updates than nothing at all ;-) ).

Cheers.

I've rebuild the CPS with the latest german update, made a new installer and uploaded it to the Latest folder

Hi,



Thank you for this translation.
At the moment, we don't have any Chinese font, as far as I know, there is lot of glyphs even in the shortest one.
To add such support, and only if you can do the job, you need to draw all the needed glyphs, the current limit is 126, and that for the 5 different fonts (6x8, 6x8-bold, 8x8, 8*16 and 16*32) the firmware use.

I can send you a zip file containing all the glyph bitmaps pictures (XBM format, which you can edit on any platform using an "serious" image editor like Gimp).

BTW, the translation file you sent seems to be made out from an old language file, lot of entries are missing (around 46, .built is there twice), and many of them has changed since. But it's fixable.


It's not impossible to support Chinese language, but the first condition is the number of required glyphs.


Cheers.

I think 6x8 can't display chinese font well. At least need to use 8x8.

We can reference Motorola GP338 Chinese version to creat font.

Please look the picture I send.

gp338 font.jpg
The Motorola firmware contains images of each of the Chinese characters which are used in that radio.

We will not simply be able to use the font data from Motorola radios because

1. There is no source code for this radio
2. Even if we had the source code and graphics, we would not have a license to use that font, because of copyright


The OpenGD77 firmware uses bitmap fonts, See. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_font#BITMAP
And only contains graphics images for latin characters e.g. 0-9 a-z A-Z, accented letters and some punctuation.

It is impossible for use to create bitmap fonts for the chinese language for you, because :-

1. We don't read or write or speak Chinese and have no knowledge of Chinese characters
2. We simply don't have time to learn how create the font.
3. Its also a huge amount of work to integrate a pictogram base language font into the firmware, because its likely a lot of other changes would be required.
Regarding the GD-77 Chinese of the DM-1801, why can't I refer to how the original firmware operates?
Capacity is not a problem in theory, because the original Chinese firmware of BF can support the complete 5000 commonly used Chinese characters, which means that it has built-in standard Chinese GB2312 character library

The radio without firmware supports nothing. Everything must be in the firmware. The original firmware includes Chinese characters. The OpenGD77 firmware does not. As described before, adding support for Chinese characters is a massive job and almost impossible for the developers who do not know the Chinese language.

So many chinese people in the World, and not a single developer to include this language? Shame on those.

Feel free to make a fork and support it. Let see who will be ashamed.
