Next language translated to 100%

Special thanks to alaks who made Czech the sixth language which is now available with a 100% translation rate. In addition I want to thank all translators who did a tremendous work over the past years.

To show how far the various languages have been translated here a short statistic overview covering languages with more than 30% of progress

Language Progress
Spanish 100%
German 100%
French 100%
Italian 100%
Dutch 100%
Czech 100%
Portuguese (Brazil) 83%
Swedish 64%
Hungarian 43%
Finnish 37%
Japanese 36%

It would be great if even more people could be helping to translate the software. We are especially looking for Portuguese (Brazil), Swedish, Hungarian, Finnish, Japanese. Of course any help for the other languages that CAcert is offering is appreciated.

Workaround for Russian Translation of the CAcert Website (bug #900)

Russia Translation of CAcert.org WebsiteWe had received a couple of reports by either irc, emails to support or on mailing lists, that the Russian Translation of our CAcert.org Website has garbled Russian translations. This has been reported as Bug #900.

After several analyzes, tests, discussions, we came to the conclusion, that we need an overall UTF-8 upgrade of the critical system. This has to be started as an individual project. As this project doesn’t effects our great efforts on Audit, the priority is lowered against several other Audit essential projects. So currently, there is no easy and no quick fix possible. So we, or better to say Michael V. A. (one of the bug reporters) worked out an workaround:

the exact steps to reproduce both the problem and the workaround:

1. The Bug
http://CAcert.org [^] / Translations / ???????
( http://www.cacert.org/index.php?id=0&lang=ru_RU )

Now the text is garbled (“Western ISO-8859-1” autodetected).

2. The Workaround
Switching to ISO-8859-5.

In my browser (Firefox 3.6.13) it’s exactly the following:

View / Character Encoding / More Encodings
/ East European / Cyrillic (ISO-8859-5)

Now all Russian text is okay.
The workaround works for me.
Yes, I think this should work for other users, as well.
