Hello,
we did a translation from german into bosnian. Now, the client wants us to replace the bosnian special chars: š, đ, č, ć, ž (and the uppercases) with the chars from the ISO 8859-1. What is the representation of this chars in ISO 8859-1?

Regards,
Mirza

8859-2 Sep 5, 2006

Hello Mirza,

the code page ISO 8859-1 does not contain any Bosnian characters. Your client will need to use 8859-2 to represent Bosnian characters, which may pose a problem if he additionally uses characters from 8859-1.

The code map for 8859-2 can be found here:
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8859-2

HTH.

Sonja

The customer has possibly a font problem Sep 11, 2006

(like é instead of č, dropped-out đ etc)... which can not be solved by juggling the character sets. They would need to get middle-european fonts, as opposed to west-european standard font files.

PS: ... switching to UTF-8 would be a sensible suggestion - but then they would need unicode fonts, asfar as I understand it.

UTF-8 should be no problem Sep 20, 2006

UTF-8 is definitely a good choice. Today, all TrueType/OpenType fonts are Unicode-based, so there should be no problem. I'd advise DejaVu fonts (http://dejavu.sourceforge.net/) they've a very extensive subset of Latin and Cyrillic.
