Javanese Indonesian Flag

Table Designator


This is the technical description of a DBT Translation table. If you want more general information about languages and template choices, please see the list of templates.

Initially, the language table for braille translation is determined by the selected template, and may be changed using the Document / Translation Tables menu. Using those menus does not require use of the table designator. However, to switch to a different translation table partway through a file, one must enter a DBT code and the designator for the table to switch to. For switching secondary languages within a base language table, see the [lng~X] command. For switching from one base language to another, see the [lnb~...] command.

Functional Summary

The Javanese tables support print-to-braille and braille-to-print translation of Javanese-language literary text in uncontracted Javanese braille. The tables can be described as uncontracted letters, with punctuation and numbers following Indonesian usage.

The Javanese tables can be used for other minority languages of Indonesia, and can also be used for many of the languages of Papua New Guinea. For the language of Indonesian (the majority language of Indonesia), use the separate Indonesian DBT translator.
