Cyrillic support for Russian

There is a Russian demo page on donkin.org at RussianText (KOI8-R) - see the screenshot on this page. To use the demo page, you'll need to set the browser charset to KOI8-R for this to work, and disable UTF8 encoding of URLs in your browser so that the links work properly. See Browser Setup in InternationalisationEnhancements for the details.

I have tested TWiki with normal WikiWords in Russian on Perl 5.6, and they are correctly auto-linked as long as you have KOI8-R as the site character set.

Since donkin.org normally runs with ISO-8859-1 rather than KOI8-R, all WikiWords will need to be written in brackets on this site, and the screenshot below does not show auto-linking of WikiWords. If you set up your own site, it's easy to set the $siteLocale to (for example) ru_RU.KOI8-R, ensuring that all pages appear in the right character set.

Other Cyrillic languages

Other Cyrillic-using languages such as Ukrainian and Bulgarian will work fine given suitable locales, and topics will be sorted in WebIndex based on the locale you've specified.

See JapaneseAndChineseSupport for more on browser setup details, and InternationalisationEnhancements for some background. This code is now in the TWikiRelease01Feb2003, which is now running on TWiki.org (although the locale features aren't turned on here).

Comments and feedback

Can I change the form and mark this as MergedToCore against BeijingRelease since it is mentioned in it's release topic: TWikiRelease01Feb2003.

I suppose mixing translations in the same topic to facilitate cyrillic-latin bilingual site managing. See ForUserLanguagesPlugin
