Hungarian ZIM file
: I will prepare one, but may you please help us to translate Kiwix user interface in Tajiki [https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special:Translate&group=out-kiwix&language=tg-cyrl&filter=!translated&action=translate on Translatewiki] ?

::: I am actually Iranian and my language is Persian(With Persian alphabets) and I'm not fluent in Tajiki which is an accent of Persian but is written in cyrillic script,The Russians did [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tajik_language#Writing_system that] so nowadays people in Tajikistan use Russain much more than Persian,at least in their online activities!! And I'm going to use this ZIM file and some other things to write an script which can transliterate Tajiki to Persian and vice versa, I'll use my script and Persian translate to make the Tajiki translate available. It will take a while but I will.Thanks a lot for the ZIM file!
 
:::: Nice. If you are fluent in C++, we would love to integrate such a tool based on libicu transliteration algorithms. [[User:Kelson|Kelson]] ([[User talk:Kelson|talk]]) 18:35, 25 December 2014 (CET)
 
:::: Tajiki is an accent of Persian so there are some little differences also sometimes there are three or two letters in Persian alphabet for one letter in Tajiki alphabet, so I'm thinking about a sqlite database and an script as API. and unfortunately I'm not good at cpp.
 
== Unzip errors ==
 
Downloaded kiwix-0.9+wikipedia_en_all_07_2014.zip via bittorrent, no problem. Then got these errors when trying to unzip:
<pre><nowiki>
UnZip 6.00 of 20 April 2009, by Info-ZIP.
[...]
file #1: bad zipfile offset (local header sig): 46155327025
[...]
 
UnZip 5.52 of 28 February 2005, by Info-ZIP.
warning: 46155327101 extra bytes at beginning or within zipfile
(attempting to process anyway)
error: start of central directory not found; zipfile corrupt.
(please check that you have transferred or created the zipfile in the
appropriate BINARY mode and that you have compiled UnZip properly)
</nowiki></pre>
 
Unzip 6.00 keeps going, but throws lots of errors; unzip 5.52 stops after what is shown above.
 
Bittorrent should of course do checksums itself, but I wanted to make sure. So I tried to look on the site for that md5sum, no luck. So tried the other way, did a local md5sum on the file, then searched that via google. That came up with
http://download.kiwix.org/portable/wikipedia/kiwix-0.9+wikipedia_en_all_07_2014.zip.md5
Which had
de0d8ff5fd1cd7636dd4e4b21c2df380 kiwix-0.9+wikipedia_en_all_07_2014.zip
So the bottom line is for some reason the zipfile throws errors with what may be the most canonical unzip program. I'm now unziping via the "Keka" program, a GUI front end to 7zip, it seems to be going fine, but that may just be because it's ignoring the errors.
 
Also I find myself wanting to know the checksums of all of the files inside the zipfile.
 
I'm planning to put a link to the checksum on the front page. I'll also try unzipping with different tools on different platforms, if that works out all the same I'll post per-file md5sums, although someone who has access to the original files doing that would be better. It's also be good to know which program is used to make the zipfiles. [[User:Danjcla|Danjcla]] ([[User talk:Danjcla|talk]]) 19:10, 7 January 2015 (CET)
 
: I guess this is related to [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zip_%28file_format%29#ZIP64 this]... take a recent version of 7zip and it should work. [[User:Kelson|Kelson]] ([[User talk:Kelson|talk]]) 19:17, 7 January 2015 (CET)
 
:: That makes sense. should a warning be put up on the main page? This is non-obvious. [[User:Danjcla|Danjcla]] ([[User talk:Danjcla|talk]]) 19:24, 7 January 2015 (CET)
 
::: There is already an entry in the [[FAQ]], this is enough IMO. [[User:Kelson|Kelson]] ([[User talk:Kelson|talk]]) 19:26, 7 January 2015 (CET)
 
== Wikispecies download button missing ==
 
It seems that the Wikispecies download button appears only in the English version of this page. [[User:Kelson|Kelson]], any ideas? [[User:Macofe|Macofe]] ([[User talk:Macofe|talk]]) 00:33, 5 May 2015 (CEST)
 
:We don't have all projects in all languages. That's why we don't need/have for each kind of button (Wikipedia, Wiktionary, ...) a local version in all languages. Wikispecies is only available in English... that's why we only have it proposed, in the English welcome page. [[User:Kelson|Kelson]] ([[User talk:Kelson|talk]]) 00:54, 5 May 2015 (CEST)
