(Any help in expanding/correcting the above table would be greatly appreciated pfaedit@users.sourceforge.net). For more information on translating fontforge see the UI Translation page.

When you create a Style entry for an language in the Element->Font Info->TTF Name dialog, FontForge will attempt to translate the American English style into something appropriate for that language. It understands languages in the above table, but not others so it won't always work.

So if your style in American English is "BoldItalic" then after you create the appropriate strings FontForge will default to "GrasItalique" for French, "FettKursiv" for German, "ОбычныйКурсив" for Russian and "NigritaCursiva" for Spanish.
