View Full Version : Chatting in Cyrillic

08-10-2005, 01:31 PM
Can anyone tell me how to type in the Russian alphabet (Cyrillic) in the online chat box?

Do I need the Russian release to do so?

AFAIK using Altavista translator would atomatically give you Russian letters.

Thanks carguy but I meant in the chat box while playing IL2 online. I see pilots use both Roman (Latin) characters and Cyrillic characters. I was wondering if the English release of IL2 allows for this. If so, how does one type using Cyrillic letters?

If it does, then you will have to check character mapp for the codes.

You are right Megile. Assuming one knows which Cyrillic letters correspond to which keyboard keys, is there a flag of some sort which causes the chat box to display Cyrillic characters?

Example: Typing "<rus salut" in the chat box might result in "с?лÑŽÑ"" in the display. What I'm looking for is IF it's possible and IF SO, how?

So, once it is permitted, you will continue your conversation with him on why Jon Bon Jovi sucks? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

I would assume that if your keyboard is mapped to Cyrillic that you would be able to type in Cyrillic. That's assuming that PF has Cyrillic characters in the font set, of course.

Now as to being able to type in both Latin and Cyrillic typesets, I have no idea.

Faust, last I heard you can only use cyrillic in the russian release, but someone may have worked it out since.

It does work, but...

in my character mapp, the Cyrillic letters aren't assigned to key strokes.. the only way to do it is to copy and paste pre-written messages, unless you have a Cyrillic keyboard enabled.

The German heroes better watch out then. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Yes, you can type in both Russian and English, even if you have English version of the game (that's what I have).
In order to do so you will need to enable Russian language in the control panel under regional and language options.
There you will need to assign a keystroke for switching between the languages (I use Alt+Shift).
Once this is done, all you need to do is to mark your keyboard with corresponding Russian characters.

Good luck,

PS.: BTW, that AltaVista program makes funny translations, in many cases not giving the true meaning of what was said.

Unicode characters work as well.

for higher speed of chat do yourself a favor and find a phonetic russian layout http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I'm not sure if there is an official one but the will be many 3rd party out there http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks Sambar. I'll give it a shot tonight.

Any you're right babelfish definitely translates things funny.

08-11-2005, 01:37 PM
Just for fun - I put the following in babelfish:

There are a lot of fish in the sea.

German (translated from English)
Es gibt eine Menge Fische im Meer.

OK that makes sense. But then translating that back to English you get:
There is a quantity of fish in the sea.
