Traditional mongolian support
Comment 2 Badral 2008-07-01 14:11:18 UTC
I upgrade priority to P2 due to Pavels msg.
Is it possible to integrate it to SRC680 tree until 20 of July 2008?
Comment 3 andreas.martens 2008-07-01 15:34:19 UTC
Thank you for your patch.
We will not be able to integrate it until July, 20th because we are right now in
a "stabilization mode" for OOo3.0. But when this is done and the code line for
OOo3.1 is opened (July/August I think) we will integrate your patch ASAP.
Comment 4 Mathias_Bauer 2008-09-08 15:51:12 UTC
I applied the patch in CWS mongolianlayout. It will take some time to review and
perhaps improve the patch.
Comment 5 chkur 2008-10-30 16:43:53 UTC
Does this patch solve - 
vertical text in table cells? Is it good enough to be integrated in 3.1?
Comment 6 Badral 2008-11-25 01:05:34 UTC
Today I became a bug via I forgot to add mongolian to the CTL
menu. mba can you please complete it? Which procedures are related with this entry?
Comment 7 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-25 08:44:22 UTC
Do you mean the menu in "Tools-Options-LanguageSettings-CTL"?
Comment 8 Badral 2008-11-25 09:39:23 UTC
Comment 9 Badral 2008-11-25 11:33:26 UTC
Again, the entry name should not be "Mongolian" but "Mongolian script"
Comment 10 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-25 11:43:57 UTC
I checked all relevant files; it seems that everything is there except a String
that shall be displayed in the list box. The file for this is 

Currently it contains 

        < "Mongolian" ; LANGUAGE_MONGOLIAN ; > ;

AFAIK this is the cyrillic variant, so perhaps we should name that
"Mongolian(cyrillic)" and add the missing line, so that we have

        < "Mongolian (cyrillic)" ; LANGUAGE_MONGOLIAN ; > ;
        < "Mongolian" ; LANGUAGE_MONGOLIAN_MONGOLIAN ; > ;

This should be enough to see the string in the list box.

Of course if you want to stick with "Mongolian" for the cyrillic variant you can
choose a suitable string for LANGUAGE_MONGOLIAN_MONGOLIAN as you see fit.
Comment 11 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-25 14:28:18 UTC
I just learned something new, and I'm afraid that I have some bad news.

What I didn't know (and nobody from the team knew): in OOo we can only support
*either* Mongolian *or* Mongolian(cyrillic). The reason is that we don't have
real script support and the script type is derived from the "language attribute"
(should be "locale attribute") of the text.

Implementing script type support in OOo is a lot of work to do and will most
probably not happen before the OpenJava guys have defined how *they* will fix
this problem (they also have it). We want to stay "compatible" with them as our
UNO struct we use for transporting the relevant information is directly mapped
to the Java type in our Java-UNO binding.

There is a possible workaround. It will enable users to use either script type
in their documents, but not both Mongolian and Mongolian(cyrillic) in the same

Before I go into the details - what do you think?

The only alternative I see is throwing our Mongolian(cyrillic) but this will
damage older documents written with that language and script type.
Comment 12 Badral 2008-11-25 17:46:28 UTC
Please define like that:
< "Mongolian (cyrillic)" ; LANGUAGE_MONGOLIAN ; > ;
< "Mongolian (traditional)" ; LANGUAGE_MONGOLIAN_MONGOLIAN ; > ;

>There is a possible workaround. It will enable users to use either script type

Most probably, mongolian users want to use just mixed. What do you mean with
"script type"? (is it cyrillic and traditional?)
>The only alternative I see is throwing our Mongolian(cyrillic) but this will
>damage older documents written with that language and script type.
How is it for new documents? I think, really few users have created documents
with Mongolian (cyrillic). Could users use both script types?

> Please define like that:

Sorry, that was before I recognized the problem. We can have only one of them at
the moment anyway, so we can stay with "Mongolian".

Using mixed is not possible in the current OOo version as we don't have a
"script type" attribute for text, only "language" and OOo uses a fixed
assignment of language to script type. And "script type" in OOo currently only
can have three values: "asian", "CTL" and "Western", and the latter is just
everything that does not fit into the other categories. So "Western" also
contains all cyrillic variants also.

Currently "Mongolian" is assigned to "Western". We can keep it that way (plan A)
or we can move it to "CTL" (plan B). With some creative coding we can at least
make this assignment on a per-document basis, but inside a particular document
we have to assign "Mongolian" to either script type (plan C).

>> damage older documents written with that language and script type.

My suggestion here would be plan B: assign "Mongolian" to "CTL". If users had
created a document with mongolian text, this text now magically would become CTL
text. What this would mean exactly for the way how OOo treats this document has
to be figured out. Most probably the spell checking won't work for mongolian
text with cyrillic layout.

In case of new documents they would automatically have the right language
assignment to the "CTL" section, but in older versions of OOo they would have
the same problem as the cyrillic ones in future versions. BTW: only with Plan A
we won't have this problem!

Plan A would mean: keep it like it is. Consequence is that most probably spell
checking won't work with mongolian documents in traditional layout.

With plan C (allow to assign "Mongolian" to either script type group) we could
avoid problems at least for future OOo versions if the whole document either
uses cyrillic or traditional layout.

"Plan D" would be implementing script type support in OOo. AFAIK this is
possible since ODF 1.2 and so basically doable. But the effort is high and
definitely not doable for OOo3.1. 

Does that answer your question so that you can tell me if we should go for plan
A, B or C? While "A" and "B" are done fast and easily, "C" would require some
additional coding.
Comment 14 erdeely 2008-11-26 15:03:51 UTC
The 2 variants of Mongolian are effectively different languages - the words in
traditional Mongolian and Cyrillic Mongolian have completely different spellings
and the rendering rules for the 2 variants are also completely different
(Mongolian Cyrillic follows basically the same rules as other Cyrillic scripts
whereas traditional Mongolian is more like Arabic, with the glyphs of the
letters changing form according to their position in the word, etc.).

So in my view the best solution is to treat Mongolian as 2 languages (plan E):
  language 1) traditional Mongolian; and 
  language 2) Mongolian Cyrillic.

Then Mongolian Cyrillic can be included in Western along with the other Cyrillic
variants; and traditional Mongolian can be included in CTL, alongside Arabic.

This also solves the problem of mixing the 2 variants of Mongolian in the same
document (assuming you can embed Western in CTL and vice versa), and the problem
of older documents written in Cyrillic.

And since plan E is basically a combination of A and B, presumably it should
also be fast and easy?

(BTW I don't think plan D works - it's not possible to define a transliteration
between the traditional and Cyrillic scripts; the words are actually different,
and you can't just change from one to the other by just changing the script.)
Comment 15 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-26 15:32:47 UTC
Sorry, but I already explained why this is not possible at the moment: we can
differentiate between languages only if they have different ISO locales. This is
unfortunately not the case for Mongolian cyrillic/traditional.

And you seem to misunderstand "plan D". Plan D is to enable OOo for script type
support. This would enable it support both Mongolian variants, even if they
share the ISO locale. Everything else than plan D is a hack.
Comment 16 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-26 15:41:55 UTC
Some further explanation:

To treat text correctly, OOo must know which (ISO) language and which script
type is has. As OOo does not have script type support in the file format at the
moment, we have a fixed assignment language<->script type and this works in most
cases. We fail in all cases where an ISO locale is used with different script
types, like Mongolian or Serbian.

So the only correct and future-proof fix would be extending OOo's text
attributes to have language *and* script type. ODF 1.2 allows us to do so, but
the implementation will cost a lot of time. 

So my plans A-C describe how we should treat Mongolian in between: either keep
it "cyrillic always", "traditional always" or "either cyrillic or traditional on
a per document base".

BTW: I don't understand how you see conversions involved in my "plan D". But I
hope that now this plan becomes more clear.
Comment 17 Badral 2008-11-26 17:10:33 UTC
It seems for me Plan D is most intelligent. But we don't have to fly in the
universe, so I would prefer Plan C to support two mongolian variants in OOo 3.1.
Because, in Mongolia used cyrillic script more common (also official script) and
as I want also to support mongolian traditional script in OOo. 
I hope that, Plan D must come on some day in future.
Is it really not possible to assign Mongolian (traditional) to mn_TR?
I have planned to implement traditional mongolian locale with this code and it
has been added to OOo build system. ( issue 88665 )
Comment 18 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-27 14:09:04 UTC
No, mn-TR is no valid ISO locale.

And this brings us to another problem that can make even "Plan C" impossible.

There is i18n-based functionality like our "break iterator" that is though to do
something with text, based on its "language" attribute, that we transport as UNO

This struct does not allow to transport the script type and so e.g. the break
iterator is not able to distinguish between Mongolian text in cyrillic and
traditional layout. 

As the i18n code and even more the ICU that it uses for many purposes doesn't
know anything about configuration settings, I currently see no way to consider
additional information to make the wanted differentiation inside our i18n library.

So at the end we can have linguistic and other i18n support only for either the
cyrillic (Plan A) or the traditional (Plan B) variant.

cc'ing Eike, our expert for i18n stuff.
Comment 19 ooo 2008-11-27 15:32:27 UTC
As the css::lang::Locale struct corresponds to the java.util.Locale this
essentially boils down to how Java will handle script codes in future.
The current Language/Country/Variant fields were modeled after IETF RFC
1766. That has been superseded by IETF BCP47 (RFC 4646 and 4646bis and
related) language tags. There was a "Java Locale Enhancement Project"
initiated at OpenJDK, see
That mail in the quoted text at the bottom also includes valuable links.

Further references:

I'm eagerly awaiting the outcome. However, we cannot support different
script types for the same language as long as that issue isn't solved.
After that, conversion between MS-LangID and lang::Locale will have to
be adapted, handling inside i18npool to pass it down to ICU, and quite
some effort will have to go into storage of fo:script elements in ODF
(v1.2 will have that) respectively a RFC4646 fall-back where the
combination of fo:language, fo:script and fo:country is not sufficient.

I think this issue here should be retargeted to OOo3.x, doing so.

Thank you for being patient ;)

Comment 20 erdeely 2008-11-29 16:25:30 UTC
OK, let me explain briefly our current status and why we'd like to find a
solution of some form in the short term rather than the longer term.

We have made a spell checker for the cyrillic form of Mongolian, and we've also
developed support for the traditional Mongolian script, including an Open Type
font with most of the rendering rules for determining the correct forms of the
letters in the words. These are currently built on top of OOo2.4, and, as far as
we are aware, there is no usable version of either of these things except ours.
We would therefore like to make both of these "officially" available as soon as
possible (i.e. before someone else implements the same things on another
platform ;-) ) to encourage as many Mongolian users as possible to use OOo. 

If I understand the discussion we've had so far correctly (and please correct me
if I don't), the situation currently is as follows:

1) there is a fixed list of "valid" languages, and we can only use languages
from that list.

2) each of the languages in the list has a fixed language type - Western, CTL,
or Asian.

3) we can have country variants of a language (e.g. mn-MN, etc.), but all of
these must have the same language type as the basic language.

4) if/when the "script" attribute of a language is implemented, it will be
possible for different scripts to have different language types.

Assuming all this is correct, the following 2 possibilities occur to me:

1) Is there some sort of "dummy"/"wildcard"/"other" language defined in the list
of languages? If so, we could temporarily use "other"-mn for the second version
of Mongolian. (Yes, I know this is a hack, but at least it would allow us to
include both forms of Mongolian now and I guess a lot of the work would be
reusable after the script attribute is implemented.)

2) Is it possible to make a branch in the development, and have one form of
Mongolian included in the official OOo3.1 and the other form included in an
unofficial version? (I'm thinking of branch points as in the CVS version control
system.) We could then develop the two scripts independently on the two branches
(i.e. one branch follows plan A and one branch follows plan B), and then merge
the branches when the script attribute is implemented. This is of course not
ideal for Mongolian users who want to use both scripts because they need both
versions of the system, but it's still better than only having support for one

Comment 21 Mathias_Bauer 2008-11-30 14:27:41 UTC
Without going into details, IMHO we can have both Mongolian variants in OOo, we
just can have linguistic support only for one of them. 

Currently "Mongolian" is a "Western" language (cyrillic script). You can add the
spell checker for that language to OOo and it will work .

You can also add your traditional Mongolian support. In fact I already have
committed the attached patch into a CWS) and it should work (as good as in your
own builds). 

Users just can't set the language of the text to "Mongolian" and so no spell
checking is possible for text written with "Traditional Mongolian". This will
require the changes in OOo Eike and I tried to explain. So the request of badaa
in #desc7 can't be fulfilled in OOo 3.1.
Comment 22 ooo 2008-12-01 12:03:30 UTC
Note: I made this issue depend on issue 88665, as that is about adding
the ISO mapping and language list box entries. Further discussion about
the script type problematics should be carried over there to not clutter
this issue here.

Forget about the "language type" (Western, CTL, CJK), that is only some
arbitrarily (and IMHO badly) constructed classification introduced by
MS, in fact it should be called "CTL, CJK, Other" instead. The problem
is with the script types, and that currently multiple script types for
one language are not representable in the API, and storing them in the
file format is also not implemented yet.

To your points above:

1. No, there are no user definable language codes reserved in ISO 639.

2. A branch of OOo: you don't really want that. You especially don't
   want it to maintain. If you personally want to do that, including
   rebasing the branch to new master milestones to catch up with
   development on trunk, do the release handling, QA and everything else
   that is needed, then of course it would be a possibility.
Comment 23 ooo 2008-12-01 12:23:54 UTC
Well, just to be exact:

> 1. No, there are no user definable language codes reserved in ISO 639.

This is not exactly true, ISO 639-3 reserves some codes for _local use_,

| Reserved for local use
| Identifiers qaa through qtz are reserved for local use, to be used in
| cases in which there is no suitable existing code in ISO 639. There are
| no constraints as to scope of denotation. These identifiers may only be
| used locally, and may not be used in interchange without a private
| agreement.

Surely a distributed and documents created with it would
not meet the "private agreement" requirement.
Comment 24 Badral 2008-12-03 13:06:29 UTC
I am sorry for the late reply. I was ill.
How can we go on now? Can we follow Plan C until mongolian discrete locale
Comment 25 Mathias_Bauer 2008-12-03 13:42:18 UTC
No, even Plan C isn't possible. 

So we can do what I mentioned in my last comment: integrate the traditional
layout support, but without the ability to have linguistic support for it. 

The language attribute of the text will be incorrect, with the consequence that
spell checking is impossible and the break iterator will fall back to a default
behavior (AFAIK word breaks will be blanks only).

Comment 26 Badral 2008-12-04 11:00:40 UTC
To cut a long story short, we should stay with Plan A. For that we don't have to
do any changes. Should I close now this issue or can we consider it for 3.X?
Comment 27 Mathias_Bauer 2008-12-04 16:33:58 UTC
Now you are confusing me. I already have integrated the attached patch and we
need this issue to continue. "Plan A" was only about the missing locale support
and this is covered by issue 88665.

So if you are fine with what you had in your personal work space before you
created the patch, we can continue with the CWS. I will try to hand it over to
QA as soon as possible if you agree.
Comment 28 Badral 2008-12-04 20:04:25 UTC
I thought that I started new issue for #desc7. It confused you and me, Sorry mba!
I agree with you 100%. We have to continue it as usual. So, I reset the target
of this issue to 3.1. Is it ok?
Why I choosed "Plan A" is:
1. Cyrillic is official language in Mongolia
2. We have also developed a mongolian cyrillic spellchecker which works really
nice and used everyday in Mongolia.
3. Currently* we don't have mongolian (traditional) spellchecker.

Is there any possibility to support mongolian cyrillic spellchecker in Plan B? ;-)
Comment 29 Mathias_Bauer 2008-12-05 15:04:28 UTC
Not really. We will now follow "Plan A" and then hope to get "Plan D" (script
type support) added later. Please understand that I can't predict in which
release we might get that fixed. But IMHO we should fix it in a not too distant
Comment 30 Mathias_Bauer 2009-01-27 15:15:32 UTC
I'm very sorry, but we have not been able to apply a sufficient testing. The
patch is not trivial and needs quite some testing.
The plan now is to do the remaining QA as soon as the 3.1 release is done and
integrate the CWS into the 3.2 code line as early as possible.

Sorry again.
Comment 31 Mathias_Bauer 2009-03-04 16:21:32 UTC
fixed in cws mongolianlayout
Comment 32 Mathias_Bauer 2009-03-10 12:48:52 UTC
I have builds now for all platforms. Our QA will do the regression testing, will
you be able to test if the build still is OK for your feature? For which
platform(s) do you need builds for testing?
Comment 33 erdeely 2009-03-11 18:25:10 UTC
Although people are trying to introduce Linux into Mongolia, I'd guess that over
90% still use Windows, so that's the most important platform to get working
initially. I can do some testing, provided it's possible to install the new
version in parallel to my existing copy of our Mongolian version of release 3.0
- I don't want to remove or change that because I use it every day. 

If having both versions installed in parallel is possible, is there anything I
particularly need to do when I install the new version in order to make sure
that my old version remains unchanged?
Comment 34 Mathias_Bauer 2009-03-11 18:49:25 UTC
It's easy for Windows, you can just use "setup.exe /a" to create a parallel
installation. For Linux I could provide a tar.gz that does not need installation.
Comment 35 Mathias_Bauer 2009-03-13 17:36:31 UTC
I've uploaded a Windows installation set and a Linux tar to 

in the folder "mongolianlayout". In case you install the Windows build next to
another OOo 3.x version please use "setup.exe /a".

Comment 36 Mathias_Bauer 2009-04-03 16:52:09 UTC
can anyone of you verify that the build works for you? We would like to
integrate the CWS soon. 
Comment 37 erdeely 2009-04-05 13:54:48 UTC
Sorry for not replying earlier.

I tried the Windows version, but it deleted my previous version when I installed
it even though I used setup.exe /a. Is there something else I should have done
to stop it deleting the old version?

It also made my computer VERY slow so I couldn't do much with it. This might be
my computer's fault; I'm not sure. (I will be upgrading my computer later this
month so I can try it again with the new one when I get it.)

It did run when I installed it, even though it was so slow. However, I was
expecting to be able to write vertical text (not necessarily Mongolian) from
left to right, and I couldn't. Have I misunderstood what this fix should do?

Comment 38 Mathias_Bauer 2009-04-05 16:18:34 UTC
All you have described sounds very strange. As I just created a new build based
on milestone m45 I will upload this one tomorrow. I don't have an idea what went
Comment 39 Mathias_Bauer 2009-04-06 17:40:45 UTC
I have uploaded new builds. I didn't have any problems with installing or using
the uploaded Windows version, at least not with any of my documents.
Comment 40 Badral 2009-04-28 02:49:54 UTC
Sorry for my too late reply. I was on vacation where the Internet connection is
very poor. had been down all day.
Comment 41 Mathias_Bauer 2009-04-28 22:20:28 UTC
qa-upload now should be reachable, see
Comment 42 Badral 2009-04-29 02:30:31 UTC
Thanks mba! I got your builds and choosed linux tarballs to test. 
But I can't find in TTB LTR direction in format->page->text direction by
activating Enabled for complex text layout (CTL) from Enhanced language support
and with or without mongolian entry in Western for default language for document
section as well as in CTL none or something choosed. Bo success for all
How should I activate simply the direction? :) 
Comment 43 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-02 22:36:16 UTC
That's interesting. I applied the attached patch and fixed some merge conflicts.
The other patch in issue 91227 did not contain anything that wasn't already
present. Are you sure that your patch in issue 91227 (that might be the missing
piece) is correct and complete? Maybe it was a reversed patch and so it could
not be applied?

I will have a look at this patch again.
Comment 44 Mathias_Bauer 2009-05-07 11:15:31 UTC
I have uploaded a new Linux build to the ftp server. Please give it a try. I
could also provide a new Windows build in a few hours, if necessary.
Comment 45 Badral 2009-05-12 02:52:42 UTC
verified. It works at least like my local build. 
Thanks MBA!
Comment 46 Mathias_Bauer 2009-06-19 11:16:57 UTC
I made another code review and found some changes that I would like to discuss.
Let's do it one after another.

First: In SwCrsrShell::UpDown() code was added that reverted bUp eventually.
IMHO this is not the right place for this, all writing direction dependent code
should be where the cursor keys are handled, in the KeyInput method of the
In the cursor shell "up" and "down" are only logical directions, means: for e.g.
traditional mongolian layout it means "left" and "right" on the screen.
Conversion from "phyical screen direction" to "logical direction" should be done
before calling this method, otherwise e.g. the TextCursor UNO API calls that
already use logical directions and forwards to SwCrshrShell:UpDown() wouldn't
work correctly.

Comment 47 stefan.baltzer 2009-08-05 17:41:05 UTC
Verified in CWS mongolianlayout.
Comment 48 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2009-09-01 10:13:19 UTC
Evaluation of the Mongolian layout in Writer reveals the following defects:
(1) "Spacing - Above paragraph" has to be applied on the left of the paragraph,
but it is applied on the right.
(2) "Spacing - Below paragraph" has to be applied on the right of the paragraph,
but it is applied on the right of the following paragraph.
(3) The dialog panes Menu Format - Frame/Object - pane Type and Format -  Object
- Position and Size - pane Position and Size does not show the correct alignment
strings for the horizontal positioning.
(4) The positioning of anchored objects (Writer text frames, Writer graphics,
Writer embedded objects, Drawing object and form controls) does not work correctly.

I am correctly working on defects (3) and (4) and will hopefully attach the
corresponding patches to this issue. I will also commit the changes to CWS
Could You please have a look at (1) and (2)?
Comment 49 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2009-09-01 10:46:43 UTC
CC myself
Comment 50 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2009-09-01 11:26:49 UTC
Further found defect:
(5) The dialog panes Menu Format - Frame/Object - pane Type and Format -  Object
- Position and Size - pane Position and Size does work correctly regarding the
minimum and maximum values for the vertical and horizontal positions.

I am also working on this defect together with (3)
Comment 51 Oliver-Rainer Wittmann 2009-09-04 12:27:55 UTC
Another defect I have found:
(6) When the relation between page size and zoom allows it to place several
pages beside each other in the view, the pages are arranged from right-to-left.
This has to be changed in the Mongolian layout (vertical left-to-right layout).

od->badaa: Please have a look.

I have provided patches to solve found defects (4) and (3)+(5). I have also
commit these patches to cws mongolianlayout.
There may be some minor defects left in the object positioning and/or object
positioning dialog.
Please have a closer look.

contributions as soon as possible.

Adjusting issue target to 3.2 because CWS mongolianlayout was shifted to target
OOo 3.2.
Comment 60 Mathias_Bauer 2010-06-25 11:30:55 UTC
It was decided to integrate the changes if all tests are passed, but not
activate the new writing direction in the user interface. So no additional
testing is required now.
Comment 61 stefan.baltzer 2010-08-20 17:01:38 UTC
Set target OOo 3.4
Comment 62 stefan.baltzer 2011-02-03 09:55:24 UTC
Verified in CWS mongolianlayout. Traditional mongolian writing direction can not
be set via UI any more.
Comment 63 Badral 2013-03-05 10:30:35 UTC
Please enable it in UI by Plan B.
I submitted seperate issue under
