I have some experience in this area, though not with Twinax in specific.  I doubt a translation table exists with this program, it's likely a bitmap font.

There are several ways of interpreting the Hebrew alephbet where ASCII code 132 may represent Aleph for one and Resh on another....giving you unintelligible output.

So... you must have the correct font for the application.  You didn't mention whether you were using DOS, Windows or a DOS window.  If your using a DOS window, forget it!  You must be using either full-screen DOS (can be within Windows) or Windows.

Some sources you should check out include the following:

For other emulators that support hebrew:

for translation:

for fonts: (search for hebrew)

Hope I've helped!

Yaki, I neglected to mention that if you are translating from EBCDIC to ASCII.... you should be able to change the equivalent ASCII/EBCDIC translation values.  

You may have to provide more details about the exact nature of the problem and which version of Twinax you are using (DOS, OS/2 or Windows) if you require further help.

thanks. I've narrowed my problem to just this:
where can I change the translation table convertin the ebcidic to ascii?
I've found some tables at QUSRSYS but changing them doesn't semm to help.
I have a problem with only one letter "ALEPH" which is being converted to blank.
can you help me?

A problem with just Aleph??  That's it?

How odd! I assume that Aleph exists as a font (you have seen it appear), correct?  Can you not edit the table to the appropriate font?

You haven't mentioned the platform.  Is this Windows 95, DOS, Windows 3.1x?

man, I keep forgetting.
I'm working with win95.
when I asked the question I had troubles with all of the letters, but IBM told me to look at www.ibm.co.il/html/products/odbc.htm where a fix resides. I used it and everything is OK beside the ALEPH. I'm looking to find the translation table.
