Try to look around for some other localization projects, like KDE, Gnome,
Mandriva, Debian... You don't have to start on that, hehhe, just try to
contact those persons. Maybe they can help you with fonts on Linux?
Or is there something like semi-centralized and generalized localization
project? There was one for Croatian language (mine own), but is heavely
Try to contact some local companies that use Fedora (or any Linux), like
banks, shops, markets...
You may even try to approach them with idea of localizating Fedora, and
ask for some kind of sponsorship. If there is no existent localization of
any kind fo r your language, I beleive that you could find someone. Do not
ask for to much, just some practical help. Like testing of translation and
font on real people (end-users). Maybe eve to try Army? Air force? They
always have sense of national pride.
If lucky (like I am NOT), you could ask for simple favors, like web-space
for localization project or funding for that, PC parts (like hdd), broad
band connection or coverage of costs...
In return they get:
- exclusive support
- gratitude from nation
Try national university or academy! Here, in Croatia, National university
was major (only) sponsor for localization project. They did provide
web-space only, but it is more then wellcomed!
Do not hesitate, cos you will be doing the same thing Linux programmers do
all around world - Linux IS free, but if you want my active and devoted
support, you will have to cover my costs. Just lower the price :)
Thank you for suggestion...
Actually, the problem is that we dont have the standard font and stable
one.. So, I dont even know which font is good for Linux and which thing I
Behdad suggested me to test myanmar font in gedit. Now, I'm planning to
install fedora but i have very few disk space on my harddisk... So, I
to wait til coming saturaday to get the new harddisk.....
So, As of now, Is there anything I can do?
Is it possible to test whether myanmar font is rendering properly or not
Please take a look these links..and let me know which one should i

duplicated things :)
