Problem: Fetsch News in Russian for German FB2

Hello,

I choose
Fetch News > Russian > "Arguments & Facts" > Schedule for download

and get FB2 files, which can be read on my German computer.
All russian letters are okay.

Then I load these files onto my German eBook device and can see only ???? instead of the russian letters.



How this conversion problem can be solved?

Regards
Leo

You need to install a font that supports Russian characters on your device.

PDF books are shown correct.
FB2 books converted by Calibre too.

But not EPUB books converted by Calibre.
And not Fetched News converted as FB2 by Calibre.

PDF's embed the font and any drawing data in the file. Converted EPUB does not so your device needs to have those fonts installed independently. FB2 files are UTF8 encoded per spec and calibres output validates against the spec.

Ah, my mistake of understanding what you were saying. Try this. Convert an FB2 that is not displaying correctly to FB2. The original file will be lost (unless you use the command line) so you will want to use "Save to disk" to save the original some place temporarily. Put the newly converted FB2 on your device and let me know if the text displays correctly.
