Not sure if I should be posting this here or not. But is there a way that accordance can be updated to support Chinese text? I use accordance every single day for my studying and teaching and it really consumes a lot of time first doing my work in Accordance and then in some other program so that I can properly translate into Chinese the work that was done in Accordance. For example....

 

The Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ - 耶稣基督是童贞女所生

 

A future update that would allow notes, bible verses, etc in be typed out in both Chinese and English would be such a huge blessing you don't even know.

 

Any plans?

 

In Christ,

It is possible to type notes in Chinese in the latest version of Accordance.  You would just need to set your keyboard to the appropriate language.  And we have several Chinese texts available in the store: https://www.accordan...ational-Bibles

Is it because I only have 11.5 and not 12? Because instead of Chinese text showing up like 地狱的永久 it shows up as gibberish "35><p}/230uf" kind of like that.

 

I have already purchased three different versions of the Chinese Bible for Accordance, thanks for the heads up though.

 

BTW, i cant figure out how to post screenshots on this forum  <_<

Comes in one of the next updates the full interlinear support for Chinese Bibles? https://www.accordan...ngs/?hl=chinese

 

And hopefully soon unicode supported User Tool.

Yes except in User Tools. But hopefully soon 11.3?

 

You can have then also the Ui in Chinese Simplified. Maybe https://www.accordan...-deal/?p=110812will come too.

Ashadelo, we are adding improved unicode support all of the time, including in version 12 (also Simplified Chinese localization!)

 

The issue with your user notes, though, should not have anything to do with v11 vs v12.  You are just using an older format of User Notes.  To upgrade them to the newer format, including unicode support, go to Preferences -> User Files -> Upgrade User Notes.

Upgraded, still the same problem.

 

Thanks anyways

This should be working fine.  Perhaps you should arrange a session with Technical Support to identify the problem?

i doubt it’s a problem on my end. I just bought a new MacBook Pro two days ago and the new one as well as my old one have this problem.

The only time a program (not just accordance) has this problem is when the actual software does not support Chinese font.

There are many things that could not be working as you expected, or that we are misunderstanding each other on how you are performing it.  I'm not saying its a problem on your end, but one of our tech support staff screensharing with you can either help clarify something you missed, or help show us an aspect you are hoping to do that we are missing.

 

 

Aside from that, all I know is that Chinese is fully supported throughout the program, and we have many Chinese users that can attest to that.  I'm able to easily enter it into my notes, search the text, copy and export, or display in Simplified Chinese localization.  If any of these aren't working for you, I highly recommend you (for free) talk to our technical support.
