Cyrillic in Two Different Ways
One can write a document in Macedonian language in two ways: by using Macedonian fonts and by using Latin fonts with Macedonian language support.
First way is more frequently used, but it does not mean that this is correct way. Its main disadvantages are that the texts written with Macedonian fonts cannot be read on a computer that does not have the font installed. In addition, if the text written with Macedonian fonts is published on the internet, search engines such are Najdi!, Google or Yahoo! will not index it and the only way to access the text is by entering the direct link to it in the address bar, and not by query in search box of the search engines.
If you use Macedonian language support you will avoid all these problems. A document written with Macedonian language support can be read on every computer, and if published on the internet, search engines will have no problem indexing it, thus making it available to all.
If you have documents in Macedonian fonts and you want to convert them into Latin fonts with Macedonian language support, read the text and you will get familiar with two types of converters that will enable you to convert texts in Microsoft Word or on the internet.
LS Convert Mak v.3.0 is converter for formatting the documents in Cyrillic fonts, such are Mac C Swiss, Mac C Times, M_Svoboda, Macedonian Tms etc. into original fonts with Macedonian language support. Main precondition for using this converter is to have Windows operating system and Microsoft Word installed on your computer.
Details about installation can be found at the Login Systems website, while the converter is used as explained below. In Microsoft Word open the document that you want to convert and select LSConvertMak from the Tools menu. The window presented on the Picture 1 will appear.
The window is separated into four parts. In the first part the user determines the conversion type. The text of the document can be converted into Macedonian language support, into Cyrillic font, into Latin font in Macedonian language support and Macedonian language support in Latin font.
In the second part the user can choose which part of the document to convert. User can convert the entire document, only the header, only the footer, or to change the styles used in the document. These options can be used in combination, or all at the same time.
In the third part of the window the user determines the Source Font and the Target font for the conversion. In the “Font that should be replaced“ field user chooses the source font, and in the “Font in which the text will be converted” field user chooses the destination font.
In the fourth part the user chooses whether the Shift button is pressed when inserting “ш” (example Macedonian Тms, Macedonian Helv).
In the end, the Convert button is pressed and the converter executes the commands given by the user.
