Good day,

This is an issue with the current v1.5.4 release and non-Latin languages. I
had a similar problem with Thai and fudged around it with Troy's help. The
second section of the book transformation needs to be Latinized capitals.

ie. =3  should be =3  (just an example the characters are

Hopefully, in a later release this will be resolved.

I believe we need to move all of our locale files to unicode and change
the underlying engine code to do the transformation from that common
format to whatever the display needs might be.  This will probably be
our longer term solution.  Sorry for not supporting your domain very
well.  We're getting better! :)

    I have managed to translate the locals.d file into Hebrew, but:

    It worked fine under the previous version (before the X and Y betas).
    When I choose the Hebrew language under the preferences options and
start SWORD again
    I get this error:

    Book: Genesis does not have  a maching toupper abbrevs entry! book
number returned was: -1
              ( the book's name is changing every time I press OK and I
can't start SWORD)
