Hi. I just recently installed Learning With Texts and have really been enjoying it so far. However I can't seem to get it to work for Hindi. I read the documentation but it's not working. Does anyone have it working for Hindi? Or any other language with an Indic font for that matter? I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

 

EDIT: I finally figured it out, I simply forgot to re parse texts. If anyone wants the settings for Hindi or Telugu, just ask and I'll post them :)

Try the settings below and please get back to share your experience:

 

RegExp Split Sentences RegExp Word Characters
.!?:;.।' x{0900}-x{097F}x{A8E0}-x{A8FB}x{1CD0}-x{1CF2}

 

Make each character a word Remove spaces Right-to-left script
NO NO NO

 

Keep in mind:

1. During the process of copying it is probably advisable to avoid adding spaces like between " ". Line breaks should not enter your configuration either.

2. As mentioned above, after changing the language setting, you'll have to go to the language screen and click the "reparse" (bolt) icon.

Thanks I'll try those settings too. In the mean time I found settings from Benny on a spreadsheet he made, with settings for different languages.

 

Do you have any links to beginners texts in Hindi online?

Those settings screwed mine up – the text was missing on the 'read' page and it told me I had 0 words despite it all being present on the 'edit' page.

This guy, George, is great. He spends a single lesson on each individual concept, they're short and easy and he even teaches the Urdu alphabet as well. Use the navigation thing to find all the lessons on the script, the grammar etc.

thanks, I'll have a look at that.

 

I hope dictionary info is there too.

 

PS How does one put the details of language skill/interest at the end of one's posts?

For some strange reason all backslashes got lost in my post.

So it should read

x{0900}-x{097F}x{A8E0}-x{A8FB}x{1CD0}-x{1CF2}

instead of

x{0900}-x{097F}x{A8E0}-x{A8FB}x{1CD0}-x{1CF2}

This worked for me. Does it work for you, too?

Thanks, I'm reading through the info about Hindi on the site you gave me. I haven't got to any texts yet to test the settings. I'll let you know.

Thanks again. I hope to read the intro info soon.

Here is another update.

Try using the following value as RegExp Word Characters:

ऀ-ॿ꣠-ꣻ᳐-ᳲ

Admittedly, it is a paradigm of ugliness, but it seems to work with the online version of LWT here (as opposed to the settings above, which are fine for single-user installations).

ok, thanks I'll make a note of it.

I've been a bit busy with other things (preparing a series of lectures on the Buddha's teaching for Buddhist nuns), but plan to get back to Hindi soon.
