    Problem trying translate IGuidance Sounds...

    ok i will try explain my problem:

    my iGuidance sound is in english and i want to tranlate it to portuguese, but i have a problem in the numbers part...

    in english to say 150 we use 3 words ( one=1 undred=00 fivety=50 )

    in portuguese to say 150 we use 3 words( cento=100 e=and cinquenta=50 )

    in english to say 100 we use 2 words( one=1 undred=00 )

    in portuguese to say 100 we use 1 words( cem=100 )


    Wen iG is runig with the numbers tranlated to portuguese they have no sense because wen left 150km to destination the program says: ( um=1 cento=100 cinquenta=50 ) that is the same that telling in english (one one undred fivety)

    i want to now if is possible to change the program to only pic up the sounds i want in that situation?

    thx in advanced

    PS: sorry my bad english

    It appears the IG uses several files strung together, because of this, I don't think you can get it to work perfectly because the languages speak numbers differently. You can see this because you changed the file from the english of "hundred" to "cento" which is actually "1 hundred" and not just "hundred"

    Now, in American we also say One Fifty, and understand that to be one hundred and fifty. If you remove the "hundred" or "cento" that you use, and make is blank, then when it speaks Portuguese, it will say "um"..."cinquento", or One..Fifty

    The problem then will be when it wants to say "cento" One Hundred, there will be no wave file to play, it will be blank.

    Perhaps there is a reshack to change the wave played for specific needs, but I don't think it will be an easy hack.
