Localization for chord names
#1
Hello everybody, 
I'm new in the forum, and I'd like to submit a request for a future release of MSP.
I'd like to have the possibility to have chord names not only in the anglo-saxon mode (A, B, C,...) but also in other formats (for example Do, Re, Mi,...). 
The best should be that the program could recognize chords in those possible formats, and converts between them.
Do you think this would be possible?
Best regards.
Marco.

I agree.
I have to deal all the time with German H.
You should be aware that this is only possible for chordpro files.

MuseScore is a good example how that could be.
An excerpt from the MuseScore manual:

Note spelling
By default, MuseScore uses letter names for chord symbols. For users in regions where other note
naming schemes are used, MuseScore provides the following controls:
- Standard: A, Bb, B, C, C#,...
- German: A, Bb, H, C, C#,...
- Full German: A, B, H, C, Cis,...
- Solfeggio: Do, Do#, Reb, Re,...
- French: Do, Do#, Réb, Ré,...
In addition, there are options to control capitalization. By default, MuseScore automatically capitalizes
all note names as shown above, whether you originally enter those using capital or lower case letters.
However, you can also choose other automatic capitalization options:
- Lower case minor chords: c, cm, cm7,...
- Lower case bass notes: C/e,...
- All caps note names: DO, RE, MI,...
You can also turn off the automatic capitalization completely, in which case note names are simply rendered the way you type them.

I think this shouldn't be a problem, and the possibility to use fast transposition is very useful.

This is exactly what I meant to propose, but I didn't knew this MuseScore source. I think it could be perfect as it is, also with auto capitalization options.

I will try to find time to add support for other chord formats in one of the updates. I've gotten requests for a number of different chord formats, so I'll have to decide how many of them I want to handle with the first round of changes.
