Manage contact names

Post by Songb1rd » Tue Jan 27, 2015 9:31 pm

Hello. Speaking from a lot of people with Peugeot and Citroen cars. And who are from Russia and other countries with cyrillic alphabet (АБВГДЕЖЗ etc.). We have problems with car displays, that don't support cyrillic alphabet.

Can you please add feature to edit contacts names for bluetooth profile.

That how I see this feature.

The pictures look cut at the right edge. Do you mean: add additional name fields that should be transferred to the car instead of the original data from contact database?

Exactly. I searched a lot of android apps, and no one can do this.
If you will add this feature, I will be much grateful. =))

Do you think it may be possible to do the transliteration automatically? This would save work for everyone: you don't have to reenter all names in latin, and I wouldn't have to add an additional database and a user interface for this database to my app ;)

Only I don't know if there is only a single possibility to transform Cyrillic text, or are there more options? E.g. is it the same for Russian and Serbian? Maybe there is a set of standard rules which I could offer in the app to choose? I may as well add a conversion option for Greek users...

Hello. I think it can be in automatic mode, good idea! Sorry, but I don't know about other Cyrillic alphabets, like Serbian for example.

There are a lot of rules about transliteration (ISO, GOST etc). But I can bring rule, that russian people are usually like to use!

А а - A
Б б - B
В в - V
Г г - G
Д д - D
Е е, Ё ё - E
Ж ж - ZH
З з - Z
И и - I
Й й - Y
К к - K
Л л - L
М м - M
Н н - N
О о - O
П п - P
Р р - R
С с - S
Т т - T
У у - U
Ф ф - F
Х х - H
Ц ц - TS
Ч ч - CH
Ш ш - SH
Щ щ - SCH
Ъ ъ - (nothing)
Ы ы - Y
Ь ь - (nothing)
Э э - E
Ю ю - YU
Я я - YA

Is it different to Russian? I'm currently evaluating the ICU4J library. Do you think "ISO 9" will work (http://userguide.icu-project.org/transf ... C-Cyrillic)?

Yes, the languages are different. Basic Cyrillic is same but both languages have few letters which is absent in another. And the most important, one letter (И) is the same in both languages but corresponds to a different sound.

I've checked online demo http://demo.icu-project.org/icu-bin/translit and transliteration looks very good for both Russian and Ukrainian.

A small setback: the app size increases from 0.9 to more than 10 MB :o
I'll think about how to handle this. Maybe I'll create a plugin for the transliteration.
