If you wish we can e-mail to you about any new version developed in the future. This file includes a long description, made for those who have little experience with chess notation matters. So, please be patient while reading this. Chess games in electronic form (usually downloaded from Internet sites) are written in algebraic notation and in accordance with the PGN Standards (Pgn=Portable Game Notation). The chess games are thus given in files with the extension pgn, e.g. kasparov.pgn (all chess games of Kasparov). Chess Playing software as FRITZ, ARENA, WINBOARD and other in order to play a chess game they need it in algebraic notation -in English Language- and better in pgn standards, otherwise the file does not open.
Many chess games given over the Internet in several circumstances are given in a non English language notation, as in German, Italian, French, Greek, etc. This games need to be converted in English notation and pgn alike in order that said Chess Software can play the games.
The aim of this software is to convert Chess Notation from a language to another. An attempt is made to make the conversion of non English games similar to the pgn notation standards; in order the converted notation in English language can be readable by a usual chess playing software. Inversely, you can transform a pgn game in your local language notation, if other than English.
