I was really cofused several times trying to find the Armenian language in the list of the language pairs. Every time there is a strange: \"zzz Other zzz translation \" ...
I suppose, you are aware of the disturbing influence of such an \"ignorance\" to one of the unique and ancient languages of the world, which alphabet dates to 362 A.D.and practically is not changed till now!
We have the same 39 letters (36+3) which our ancestors used many-many years and centuries ago...Can you imagine that feeling?
In Erevan, the capital of Armenia, there is an Institute of the Ancient Manuscripts, where one can find (and research) thousands of unique Works of ancient philosophers, mathematicians, lawyers, astronomers, historians from the late 4th and early 5th centuries and, which is most important for our translator\'s community, a lot of translations of the ancient scholars from greek, latin and other languages of the time...
Some translations of Aristoteles and other greats are still the only original copies, due to the tragic fire of the Alexandrian library in the IV century and now many scientists all over the world use to go to Armenia, learn Armenian language, so to have an unique chance to read the original old manuscripts.
Sorry for this a little bit emotional posting, but one of the oldest languages of the world needs more respect to itself from us, than this universal ZZZ...
Don\'t you think so?
And we can find also the Armenian National Language Support site (Armenian NLS for Windows) where the unique Armenian fonts are available to be downloaded as well.
Hope, I didn\'t bother you...
