Hebrew translation

Post by ochoen »

The game is translated into Hebrew, but in fact there are no Hebrew fonts and everything appears in strange signs as you can see in the attached photo. Can you fix it?

Sadly the Hebrew translation is very out of date, almost all of the campaign dialogue in the game will be in English. It seems to have last been updated in 2011, with the current status shown here: https://www.wesnoth.org/gettext/?view=langs&version=branch&lang=he.

I don't know what's causing the font problem, as the game should pick up the Hebrew characters from the DejaVuSans.ttf file that's included with the game. This works for me on both 1.14 and 1.15 on Linux, however as I can't read that language all I'm checking is whether the text looks like text.
