However it had been translated on "clock" for instance, I took most of the translation there and adapted it to what I though it to be be better.

Legally though, If one does not have conditions in a language that he/she can understand, it would not be applicable to him/her.

Most contracts have a translation where at the end it is written that for any problem with the understanding of the contract, the original text in xxx will prevail.

I used Gedit with the correct characters and had it so on the screen when I made the diff.
Russian is a specific case, it's not using latin letter at all, so perhaps there is a specific configuration for it.
