    Default Burmese (Kachin dialect)

    Hi,
    I'm handling a project into "Burmese-Kachin dialect"...
    1/ Are they two different languages, or is "Kachin" just a variation of the Burmese root?
    2/ In Memsource, should I set the project under "Burmese" for the target language?

    Thank you!

    Hi,
    Memsource only supports Burmese as one language.
    I do not know anything about Kachin, but if it uses the same alphabet, I suggest you set your project for Burmese as the target language.

    Hi,
    Thank you very muchfor your help! I know the Burmese script is used for such dialect (Kachin, or Jingpho). After comparing both alphabet, the symbols look very close and have the same "style". I will go ahead and set it as Burmese. After the translation, I will have the file checked outside memsource by a native, to make sure the memsource settings didn't affect the translation.
    Myanmar has over 100 ethnic groups (Kachin being one of them), and of course, I could not expect memsource to have them all in their settings.
