Description doze_worm 2008-12-29 07:34:47 UTC
1. Type a DBC case punctuation in MS Word, copy it and paste in a Writer doc.
E.g. type "ab,cd" in word, select the ",", press "Ctrl + c", switch to a Writer
doc, press "Ctrl + v".
p.s. In Writer, the punctuation that copied becomes itself plus a space, which
    word    ->    writer
    ","     ->    ", "
2. In writer, "Tools -> Language -> Chinese translation...", just left-click OK
button on the pop-up "Chinese Translation" dialogbox.

Crash but not quit

1. Just copy the punctuation itself from word (without space).
2. Translate operates normaly.

MRU->TL: open the attached document in MS Word, copy the punctuation char to
Writer, start Chinese translation -> crash
Comment 6 michael.ruess 2009-01-29 15:01:48 UTC
Removing keywords.
Comment 7 thomas.lange 2009-02-11 12:37:55 UTC
tl->mru: can't reproduce this with OOo DEV300_m41 ans MS Word 2007.
Please check again. You may also see if the results depends upon the Word
version used.
Comment 8 doze_worm 2009-02-12 05:37:44 UTC
@tl, I can reproduce it on DEV300_m41 both with MS Word 2003 and 2007 (Windows
XP SP3 ENU). And I'll upload a short screen-capture. Hope that it will be helpful.

Comment 10 redflagzhulihua 2009-02-12 07:40:03 UTC
Just make a clarification:

It's a half-width comma, or a common English comma, *not* a Chinese comma(full

I really don't know why DBC means half-with and SBC means full width.
When I see DBC, "Double Byte Character" will come into my mind.
And when I see SBC, I'll think of "Single Byte Character".

I nearly have the doubt that this may be a mistake in the dictionary.

Who knows the where the "DBC case" and "SBC case" come from? Are they come from
an international standard or some convention?
Comment 11 thomas.lange 2009-02-12 09:24:31 UTC
tl->doze_worm: Err.. it would be more interesting if you could save the Writer
document just before you call the Chinese translation and attach that one here.
MAybe it has something to do with the language settings...
