German Language Problems?
I have a nice problem converting German TXTs to MOBI:
What I do: I have some old German books in scanned PDF format, 2 column text. Therefore a direct conversion does not work. So I save in Acrobat reader to TXT, and use Calibre to convert to MOBI.
This works fine quite often, but some letter-combinations switch the complete special characters of german language to some other characters.
for example the word "gr÷▀te" (what means "biggest", no rare word) appears in a text, all german special characters "ń,ń, Ř, ─, Í, ▄ and ▀" change to some probably norhern european characters.
If I - manually - change all the "...÷▀t..." combinations to the not so correct "...÷sst...", the complete text appears correctly.
A bug in calibre, or is it me who is doing something wrong?
many thanks in advance...
