View Full Version : Syriac bible with vowels / unicode

02-19-2010, 02:33 AM
I would like to know if they're a way to load syriac text with vocalisation in bibleworks (using syriac characters, not hebrew) ?

I find it a shame they the vocalised NT has been online for years but that no software uses it... still that unicode support problem probably.

The same for the old Ethiopic old testament, now available but of no use without any ethiopic codepage.

Please bibleworks developpers , find to solution to support unicode bibles !

God bless you all

Dear Pasquale,

Thank you for your inquiry of February 20 regarding the Version Database Compiler. You wrote to report a problem with the use of Unicode. Sadly, this is because the Version Database Compiler does not support Unicode. We hope that this does not present a difficulty to you at this time. Our suggestion would be that if the database that you wish to enter that requires special script, create the database in a standard text format, then make use of the code page for the language desired. Please consult the Help file for more information about the VDC.

I have been looking on the Internet for a Syriac Peshito Old Testament text file (not scanned pages)
I have written a utility to convert between text encodings.
If you know of any Peshito OT text file available for download I would be very greatful.
I would be willing, and may be able to convert it to Unicode in return if not already in Unicode.
