I'm proud to present my Shadow XT9 language pack, which includes 14 languages, namely...

- Czech
- Danish
- German
- English
- Spanish
- Finnish
- French
- Italian
- Dutch
- Norwegian
- Polish
- Portugese
- Russian
- Swedish

;)

I have tested it as far as possible, but feedback is appreciated. Please note that if you select an AZERTY language (e.g. French), your suretype keyboard will behave like an AZERTY keyboard. It caught me out at first :(

Enjoy!

Thanks a lot, Paul!

Where did you get all those language packs so quick?

You should probably make this post an "Announcement", so it stays at the top of the page, so that people can easily find it who are looking for other languages in the future.

Thanks again.

It's not a trick, it's just a bunch of language files and reg tweaks ;)

Does anyone know anything about a Chinese language pack?


I'm not sure about chinese input on smartphones, but here is how to view chinese/asian characters:
1. Find your favorite chinese truetype font and copy it to \windows\. I use mUniFontM and will use it in my examples.
2. Add the following registry string values:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\FontPath\FontPath=\Windows
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\FontLink\SystemLink\Segoe Condensed=\Windows\mUniFontM.ttf,mUniFontM
3. Restart.

You'll find a ton of posts on the net about how to do this but they may reference Arial, Times New Roman, etc. The new trick is that for wm6 standard (smartphone), it now uses the font 'Segoe Condensed' so those references to the other fonts will not work on wm6 standard. This drove me nuts for a few hours. :(

Hi Paul !

Thanks for the package, man.
It's really fantastic.

Just a quick one: is there a way to disable certain languages?

Best regards!

GM.

Paul and other friends,

If somebody finds a Hungarian .ldb file in some Smartphone software, please, post it in order to be able to include it into my XT9 system (on HTC Artemis).

The problem is that there's another xt9 system e.g. in Vox that uses .dll files for storing the language dictionaries. That system HAS HUNGARIAN SUPPORT, the Shadows' xt9 not... :(

But maybe some other new smartphone type has come or will come out with Hungarian support and we, Hungarian users could 'port' it into our PDAs.

Thanks in advance!
