  • Code Page Issues

    I am working on Localization process which involves translating our English software to Russian.

    I want to use Beyond Compare to compare English text (saved with Western Europen code page 1252) and Russian text (saved with Cyrillic Code page 1251)

    I am using Windows XP and set the Code page to Russian, but somehow the latest version of Beyond Compare can not make sense of the Russian characters. If I attempt to resave the Russian in BC all my Russian characters get trashed.

    Given the international support for BC, I figure I must be missing something basic.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Hello,

    You are using BC3.1.10 and not BC2.5.3, correct? BC3 has unicode support and should be able to set the code page per pane of the comparison. Perhaps it is not detecting correctly? In the upper status bar of each pane, it should show the detected codepage (ANSI, Unicode, Cyrillic, etc). Is the auto-detection correctly detecting your files, or does it need to be manually set per side?
