I am working on an android software package. and the font we are using does not support many of the Polish diacritics (eg ź).
is it acceptable to substitute latin characters for unsupported characters (eg use z instead of ź).
- Does this make software seem unprofessional?
- Does this cause loss of meaning?
- is there a list of acceptable substitutes somewhere?
- Should I just use a different font when I see the user is operating in Polish?
so far I have only had this problem with polish but I would really like to avoid having to map fonts to languages. If anyone has any other suggestions I would love to hear them.
