Description omiazad 2005-03-15 09:00:41 UTC
Well, there are lots of problems with OO 2 Beta with Bangla language. I found
the problems in OO 1.1.4 and when I download the latest beta release, I found
they are not sorted.

There is no Bangla/Bengali present in Language Options. Also no locale for
bn-BD. Officially bn-BD locale was submitted to Unicode (CLDR), which can be
found from	If possible,
please include it by the final release.

As mentioned in:
When I switch keyboard and start typing Bengali it shows garbage boxes, it
cannot detect the installed Bengali fonts automatically. But if we manually
select a Bengali font, it doesn't take the Danda (U+0964) & Double Danda
(U+0965) from that selected font. By default it brings the Danda and Double
danda from Windows's default Devanagari font Mangal. If I remove Mangal from the
system’s font folder, it shows boxes. (Mentioned in )

Like Danda and Double Danda, all these signs  . , < > / ? ' @ ; : ] } { [ + = -
_ # ~ ! " £ $ % ^ & * ( ) `  comes from Latin font. They should come from Latin
font as the works in M$ Office, but the problem is, sometime it becomes garbage,
typing on the fly. Please see 

I found the dialog boxes are not showing Bangla. I tried to save a Bangla named
file and found this:

If this happens, then we cannot find Bangla after translating the OO interface
into Bangla.

Hi, I reassign this issue to the native-lang project, so that your voice can 
be properly heard; it looks quite lost here.
Comment 4 pavel 2005-11-30 07:45:54 UTC
Please file proper issues, one bug per issue and assign to people who work on
Bengali localizations.
Comment 5 ooomod 2005-11-30 10:01:17 UTC
native-lang is not the proper place for this issue. I would like to understand
the problem since even the bengali leads have trouble understanding what it is...
Also, Pavel is right there are at least 2 different issues here. 
Let's discuss this on the dev@l10n list.

Comment 7 ooo 2005-12-13 13:34:19 UTC
Really closing, not just resolved fixed.

For the records: request as per discussion in
