In some languages you cannot use just any FONT. In most cases some font family don't have all other characters.
Maybe, check the FONT that the pdf is using.

I analyzed what you sent me, apparently the language of your modules are in ISO format and you are using UTF format.

I see this for example in one of language strings for news in UTF format (which is the spanish language pack I downloaded from xoops.org):

Quote:
define('_MI_NEWS_NAME', 'Artículos');


and in the file you sent me I see:

Quote:
define('_MI_NEWS_NAME','Artículos');




Thanks snow77, it's ok but that isn´t problem because is in administration control panel. That isn´t very important for me. I am using international characters where is important for user.
The problem are "send a friend", "pdf" and "printer" in modules. There I see utf-8 characters.


Here is an example of news module for "printer":

I don't know how else I can help you, I thought the language problem came from the language of the modules you are using aren't in UTF format, but if it's not this I don't know what else it can be. All the spanish sites I've setup are in ISO format and I am not instructed well on how each of the charsets should be correctly applied. I don't know how you can mix up both charsets on one site and still have everything look ok, like it seems you have. Maybe Riosoft has more experience with this.

Did you try the UFT-8 news module files that snow77 sent you? It really should be the solution to your problem

Hi rowdie, thanks for your answer but the problem isn´t spanish language traduction. The problem with spanish language is the generation of "pdf", "send a friend" and "printer" .

Where's the problem?

chardiar, look, it is not about "spanish traduction", this is about how the language is rendering the special characters, and the charset format the language files of your modules are in, it is all related. You lose nothing making a test with the files I sent you (you have to keep always backup of the original version you have).

For PDF creator, currently it does not support UTF-8 encoding.
Plz check the pdf package along with CBB/article etc., which provides solutions for multiple languages.

To make it work properly, you, or your local supporters need build locale encoding conversion methods for your language.
I believe we will have ML layer to handle the issue in XOOPS 2.3 or 2.4, before that you have to ask help from local support sites.

@chardiar, I currently support this site Quote:, it's a fully spanish site under ISO charset and the language works correctly, I also support other spanish sites, you could still consult me if you still can't find a solution but I'd need a closer look to your files to try and see if I might have a solution.

It's just a matter of the charset you are using, it can be UTF, or it can ISO. This is something that can be treated with whoever is managing the esxoops site maybe and is managing the spanish translations.
