Question[edit]

Dear Singkiring57,

Nice to meet you.

Is the Ho language your native language? --Philip J (talk) 07:02, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Answer to your question.[edit]

@Philip J: Yes, I am a native Ho language speaker.

Since I live in a bilingual region, I can understand and speak Hindi to a native level.

Re: Question[edit]

Does Wikipedia use web fonts for some scripts? Singkiring57 (talk) 18:10, 3 October 2016 (UTC)

Wikipedia uses Unicode (specifically the UTF-8 encoding of Unicode).
Warang Citi was released since 16 June 2014 as part of Unicode 7.0.
If the font has been recently released in Unicode, then it is able to be included on Wikipedia pages. However, in order to be able to view the Warang Citi script, that specific font needs to be downloaded first.

In the meantime, you can focus on creating Ho language articles in the Devanagari script. --Philip J (talk) 02:05, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

The Main Page of the Ho Test Wikipedia is Here (I presume the words "माङ् सकेन" means "Main Page"? Let me know if that is not the case).
I have contacted Unicode.org and will let you know when the font has been found.
You can create new Ho articles in the Devanagari script for now. --Philip J (talk) 11:03, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

Yes, "माङ् सकेन" means "Main Page"ᱹ Singkiring57 (talk) 16:55, 4 October 2016 (UTC)

This is their official response:
"The Unicode Consortium is not a supplier or vendor of fonts. We do have a page that lists some known font resources. Please see: http://www.unicode.org/resources/fonts.html."
Another reply from a Unicode specialist:
"The Unicode Consortium does not release fonts for scripts encoded in the Unicode Standard, so there is no official Warang Citi Unicode font. Unfortunately, I do not know of any freely-available font covering Warang Citi, so the Warang Citi user community needs to produce a font themselves or hire someone to do so if they want to write documents in Unicode Warang Citi."


If you wish to produce a downloadable Unicode Warang Citi font, you could try and ask this user because he had experience developing the Northern Thai Unicode script (namely the "Lanna Alif" font). --Philip J (talk) 21:38, 4 October 2016 (UTC)


@Philip J: Thank You very much, Sir, for your effort in gathering this informationᱹ I have considered creating a font myselfᱹ Hopefully I will be ready with it by the end of this monthᱹ Singkiring57 (talk) 22:09, 4 October 2016 (UTC)
@Philip J: Just curious, the Bible has not been translated into Ho, so, how do you know if my translation of John 3:16 is not correct? Singkiring57 (talk) 03:01, 5 October 2016 (UTC)
Actually, the New Testament had been translated into the Ho language using the Oriya script (It has not yet been translated using the Ho script). Here is the Gospel of John in the Ho language written in the Oriya script. If you scroll down to Chapter 3, verse 16, then you would be able to see that verse and compare their translation with yours.
By the way, are you able to read the Oriya script? --Philip J (talk) 20:17, 7 October 2016 (UTC)
Yes, I could read it with some difficulty.
I have a Unicode compliant Warang Citi font. What do I do now? Singkiring57 (talk) 07:30, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
Could you show me the link to that Unicode compliant Warang Citi font so I could download it to my computer? --Philip J (talk) 08:22, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
I have it on my computer.Singkiring57 (talk) 14:51, 12 October 2016 (UTC)
I see that you have created Wp/hoc/Main Page. You can proceed to have that page completely translated into the Warang Citi alphabet.
This original Devanagari Mainpage: Wp/hoc/माङ् सकेन can still be kept in Devanagari. This means that Ho users would have the option to write articles either in the Warang Citi alphabet or the Devenagari alphabet.
By the way, is your keyboard able to type in Warang citi? --Philip J (talk) 05:23, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
I'm writing a jQuery plugin for Warang Chiti input using English keyboard on Github.
Those lines in Warang Chiti were written using a Unicode keyboard.
So, where do I host the Warang Chiti font? Singkiring57 (talk) 17:42, 13 October 2016 (UTC)
You can place that question at the Community Portal. Someone could give you advice regarding font hosting. --Philip J (talk) 11:12, 14 October 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for providing the link to download the Ho Unicode font. Now I am able to see the Ho script on my browser.
Could you kindly help write this text into the Ho script?:
परमेश्वर नेन ओते दिसुम रेन हो को इनकाःए दुलड़ लेड् कोवा चि अयः मियड्गे होनेः एम किःये, इनिः रे विश्वास तन को दो अलाकाको गोजोः मेन्दो अनंत जिबोन को नमेका।
Thanks. --Philip J (talk) 03:22, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Could you tell me for what purpose you will be using that biblical passage. Singkiring57 (talk) 03:30, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
It will just be added onto my blog and will not be included on any Wikipedia page so you do not need to worry. --Philip J (talk) 03:37, 21 October 2016 (UTC)


What is the Warang Citi translation for "Main Page"? --Philip J (talk) 03:58, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
That would be: 𑢶𑣁𑣊 𑢾𑣌𑣈𑣓. Singkiring57 (talk) 04:12, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your help. The Main page has been redirected to that title. Could you help translate this article into Warang Citi? --Philip J (talk) 04:20, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Could you also translate this article as well? --Philip J (talk) 04:23, 21 October 2016 (UTC)

Wt/hoc main page[edit]

Hi,

thanks for its creation. Please consider its moving to Wt/hoc/... though, where ... is "main page" in hoc language.

Thank you for cooperation.

Page Incubator:Wp/hoc/𑢮𑣅𑣜𑣁𑣌𑣓[edit]

Hi, Singkiring57:

First of all, understand that all I see in the title above is boxes. And I do not have the liberty to add fonts to this computer. So I'm asking this question blindly. I'm asking you because you seem pretty active on this test.

Normally, there are not supposed to be prefixed pages in the Incubator: namespace. Instead, pages destined to be in the Project: (Wikipedia:) space in an approved project get put on a mainspace page here, and that mainspace page is named something like Wp/hoc/Wikipedia:𑢮𑣅𑣜𑣁𑣌𑣓 (with the possibility that "Wikipedia:" can be replaced by the local name).

I would therefore just move Incubator:Wp/hoc/𑢮𑣅𑣜𑣁𑣌𑣓 > Wp/hoc/Wikipedia:𑢮𑣅𑣜𑣁𑣌𑣓 ... except that there is also a redirect to that page from Wp/hoc/𑢮𑣅𑣜𑣌𑣓. So what would you suggest I do? StevenJ81 (talk) (Incubator administrator) 17:45, 28 February 2017 (UTC)

Tagging Amir who might be able to help add this font on the backend as the font is in Public Domain. As User:StevenJ81 mentioned, many users might have the issue of installing the font. User:Singkiring57, congratulations to you and all the other friends who have started this test. I am meeting some Ho speakers coming week and will share the news with them too. :) --Subhashish Panigrahi (talk) 15:36, 7 March 2018 (UTC)
