Hi translators

Since today phpMyAdmin allows using other charset in HTTP and when working 
with mysql. This requires translations to use some charset that won't break 
anything during conversion. Currently will be used utf-8 so translations 
should be converted to this charset, while also keeping current one to allow 
working in some browsers (are there any?) which don't support utf-8.

Majority of these conversion can be done automatically with script I wrote, 
but I need you to check if there didn't occur any problem. This script can do 
also conversion between charsets being used in one translation (for example 
czech translation had till now two version, one in windows-1250 and one in 

There are also some "problematical" translations which will require 
translators co-operation. These are:

georgian (because of x-user-defined charset is not supported by iconv)

hebrew (because of iso-8859-8-i charset is not supported by iconv)

korean (because of ks_c_5601-1987 charset is not supported by iconv)

slovak (because there are two a bit different translations maintained by two 
people and now only one of them is needed, other will be generated 
automatically, so I need to know which one will be maintained)

chinesse (there are two translations - chinese_big5 and chinese_gb - and I 
really don't know whether to handle them as two separate translations or just 
as one in different charsets)

I converted current cvs version to utf-8 (where it worked) and the result is 
available at http://cihar.liten.cz/PMA-translations/. There is also script 
which does this conversion (sync_lang.sh). So please have a look at your 
converted translation and send me your comments.
