Char encoding trouble ? ... Maybe not
Just asked an employee to make a french translation.
when I put this file in mango and make it usable, I've got trouble with french chars : é à ...
If the letter is in a DataPoint , no problem.
It it is in the translation file I get an ? ...
I think it as something to deal with Tomcat conf but not sure.
Using tomcat6 / java 1.6 OpenJDK / fedora 11
locales are fr_FR.UTF-8
The message_*.properies files are NOT ASCII encoded (that would be the SUN-standard) there are UTF-8 encoded!.
So If you work with a translation tool you have to recode them see reverse option of the command native2ascii.
another user from france is willing to help with the translation.
post in french:
(we use the same translation files from mango)
would you be interested in joining efforts? this could be put into mango´s main release.
