Dear honored community,
I have the following problem:
I need to convert a Latin based script (LTR) into a Rohingya Hanifi script (Unicode plane U+10D00 to U+10D3F) and into an Arabic script (+ additional letters from U+0800-08FF)
There are different challenges I’d like to get your advice on before I start sinking days and hours into TECKit:
- Can it handle Unicode V.13 and Unicode plane U+10D00 to U+10D3F? Mapping Editor only gives me access to U+0000-U+FFFF will TECKit be able to take it if I manually manipulate it to include U+10D00 to U+10D3F?
- Will FLEx be able to take that TECKit file or will it crash (as happens sometimes).
- Sadly the scripts I need to convert are inconsistent meaning they are using letters/combinations the others don’t and subsidize (or completely drop). Is there a way to make TECKit understand that a Latin “a” at the beginning of a word has to go with Alif+A-vowel in the Arabic/Rohingya script where as an a appearing within a word going with the preceeding consonant (Arabic) or being an individual character (Rohingya Hanifi). How can I put rules like that into TECKit?
- In Arabic Unicode the byte order eg. first vowel then duplication sign can also be written the other way around which both are rendered the same way but are actually different in byte order. Do I have to teach TECKit every possible combination? (Or is there a faster way to do this?)
