> I have release 2.0 of Palitrans "ready" and I was wondering if anyone would
> like to help me test it.
> This is a very big improvement over Palitrans 1.0.
> a) it looks more like MS-Word and supports bold, italic, underline, etc
> b) it supports 5 Pali fonts
> c) it has "in-place" font conversion - select some text using a Pali font,
> press a button, select a new Pali font and the font is converted.
> d) it can produce "code tables" for *any* font showing the numerical code
> and the character
> e) you can create customizable transliteration tables for *any* font
> f) the file is saved as "rtf"
> g) You can mix fonts - ie enter your English text in one font and your Pali
> text in a different font - switching between them "on-the-fly" at the touch
> of a button.
> h) supports colored text - ie you can have your English text in one color
> and your Pali font in a different color.
> i) very simple print preview and printing capability.
> j) much better "cut-and-paste" support
> On top of that, you can load a "transliteration table" that supports 12
> western languages - in case you work need to use one/several/any combination
> of the following languages in a document: English, Spanish, Italian, French,
> German, Portuguese, German, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Finnish, Gaelic
> /Modern Gaelic (Irish and Scottish). This makes it very easy to enter
> any/all of these languages using one keyboard.
> And note: you can customize the transliteration tables, so it doesn't really
> matter what language your "native language" keyboard is using.
> About customizable transliteration tables: A good example of a "customized
> use" would be Sinhalese/English or Sinhalese/French.
> If you would like to test it (either for Pali studies or general purpose
> language studies), please send me an email at:
> And note: because the software can do so much, the interface to parts of the
> software can seem a bit strange to a person who doesn't understand how
> fonts/international computers/word processors work.
> However, if all you want to do is create a simple Western text, "special
> font text" or Pali text, the software and interface is very simple.
