Russian text in Proz.com offers for Russian into English appear in a mess of Roman letters instead of Cyrillics, ergo, I am unable to read let alone translate texts. Any suggestions? Thanks. Karin I.

Just one job? Oct 1, 2005

There was a job posted yesterday - http://www.proz.com/job/88894 - which appeared in this form, but I imagine it did so because the person who posted it did it that way (possibly not knowing how to set up or use a Cyrillic keyboard, or maybe it was received that way, perhaps as a text message on a cellphone). It didn't seem difficult to transliterate into Cyrillic.

This job is now closed.

I went back some way through the jobs but could not find any others including Russian texts.

Have you tried switching encoding to Cyrillic Windows-1251? That is the encoding used for Russian on this site (not KOI8-R, for example).

Cyrillic Windows-1251 does not help Nov 8, 2005

I have the same problem with illegible cyrillic fonts, and switching to Cyrillic Windows-1251 does not help. Right now there seems to be no way to read Russian Kudoz entries.


Kind regards
