Will check later today, do not have the K3 with me ... and I have your version installed, of course. Used the example of config.txt just to outline, that I used this hack before successful as well. And as mentioned, I am not aware having changed your keyboard-european.txt, just the keyboard.txt. I have choosen this file, because the timeout is in there ... as in config.txt

Works like a charm, thank you! Will send you my "germanized" versions of keyboard.txt and keyboard_european.txt via mail...

Yours,
Ralph

Got it, but do not understand, what and why you did like this ... as mentioned, I simply modified keyboard.txt the same way as the former config.txt and get the expected results i.e. aa=ń, AA=─, qq=q
And no entry for each and every letter.

OK, I started with the Czech version which maps almost all keys to Czech characters. I kept all 1:1 entries like a=a (doesn't hurt) and changed only z=y and y=z. And of course the double entries for our German Umlaut vowels ńŘ÷─Í▄ plus ss=▀, ee=€, qq=@, ..=,

Obviously, 1:1 entries may be omitted. I left them in to provide a default matrix for other languages and their specific keyboard layout.

I want to translate the interface into Russian.
Sir Alex seems to have lost interest in this occupation.
Tell me which files in the German / Czech localization package to edit?
Pictures are already translated.

Sorry for my bad English.

Hi DanilinS,
sorry for my late answer.

Please download the attached zip file, you'll find two directory trees there:
translation and translation_unfinished

Directory translation is the translation tree, directory translation_unfinished contains files with unfinished translation only (either missing or ambiguous) and is there just for reference.
The actual Russian phrases need to be added/corrected in the translation tree.
Ambiguous phrases are separated with a special sequence #or# in both trees.

Please send me your translation when finished, I'll make the hack then.

fxexpert, is there any existing Ukrainian localization for previous firmware versions ?
It would be nice to build on it, as starting from scratch would take much more time.

I will also need a default Ukrainian layout for physkeyb, as it will be incorporated in the hack.

OK, first hack version built.
Your sources contained lot of files encoded in Windows-1251, I had to convert them to UTF-8 first. Current translation tree is attached.
There are also few remaining phrases without translation, see translation_unfinished.

Thanks a lot! And sorry for the additional work converting to UTF-8. I have translated the rest in UTF-8.

Thanks for the quick response.
This time it's complete.

BTW Have you tried to install the hack ? Does it work ? Does the keyboard work after Shift-Enter ?

I have successfully installed the hack. Quick look shows the interface translated correctly. The keyboard switching is working fine. When I press Shift-Enter, I could see at the right bottom "uk " and "en". So it seems to be one space on the right "uk " and if possible should be removed. Some more information about translations:
1. When I attach the kindle to the PC USB, I could see non English text (seems to be Czech). Is it possible to translate?
2. When from "Home" I press Menu and Experimental I could see English text without translation, below where is the option to run Browser". The text starts "We are working on an experimental Web Browser. ..."
3. When I run web browser without Wi-Fi, I got not translated text "Turn Wireless On? Your Kindle wireless is turned off. Do you want to turn wireless on?
4. When in the option to set Time I could see not translated text "set".

I have also a question about files .properties. For example, translation\com\amazon\ebook\framework\resources\S ystemMessages.properties
wn.radio.off.msg=Your Kindle wireless is turned off. Do you want to turn wireless on?
Shoud I replace it with translated text or should I add it separated by TAB?
It seems I miss that kind of translation.

Thank you again for greate job. I will fix my final translations and ask you to build the hack again if possible.
