Ok, the translations in UTF-8 are ready to be downloaded and tested:


In every archive, there are between 2 and 4 of these directories:

  scripts/    contains the latest xlpage*.php script files
  UTF-8/      the documentation in UTF-8, for wikis in UTF-8 (All languages)
  ISO-8859-1/ the documentation in this encoding (some Western languages)
  ISO-8859-2/ the documentation in this encoding (PmWikiCs and PmWikiHu)
  ISO-8859-9/ the documentation in this encoding (PmWikiTr)

The directories starting with ISO-8859-* are available only for the wikigroups 
which currently use these encodings.

Someday, all groups on pmwiki.org will be UTF-8, and PmWiki will be able to 
use the UTF-8 files even on wikis that are not UTF-8. It will still be 
possible to download the latest documentation in the older encodings, for 
wikis which do not need to upgrade or switch to UTF-8.

I invite you to test the UTF-8 version of your language and report any 
problems or errors.


P.S. The Slovak (Slovenščina) language localization was started on an 
unsupported encoding, and some characters could not be recovered. If you know 
the language, please review it (6 pages). http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWikiSi
