when i was translating the string list, i translated some strings & i try the program the strings were shown as question marks  :(

It's probably caused by incorrect font or charset, hardcoded somewhere in the program (what exactly was displayed incorrectly)? We will have to do some changes in code as well (as we did to support Japanese version, for example). You know, supporting a language such as Arabic isn't as simple as modifying the resources only - but I'm sure we can handle it! ;)

by the way...how come there's still no chinese version?

Well, the reason is very simple - nobody translated it yet ;D
Actually, a translation is in progress, but I don't know much about the status - so I guess it may take a while to finish.

Well, in the Simple User Interface (first image), it's clearly the font problem - it'll be fixed easily. As for the other ones, I don't know where exactly the problem is right now, but I'm sure it's nothing hard.
So, for now, I'd suggest to ignore these problems (even though it's not very easy to check the appearance this way, I know) - it's just a display problem and will be fixed in the program.

Igor, I got the same error while using Google translation of Russian web pages. I got a lot of ???? ????? ????? ... Some time ago, Vlk said it was related to cyrilic characters into Internet Explorer that should be activated (or installed)...

That's probably what I said - incorrect charset (in browsers, it's usually called "Encoding").
I'm sure it's nothing we can't solve ;)

Sorry... I tried to say the same using other words...
Maybe the user must run IE setup and choose the proper charsets...  8)
