Unfortunately, there are some errors in the UNHCRC 300 language collection.

In particular, I noted that the Kazakh language version is UNICODEd
using a (windows-1251 ??) conversion table, which yields wrong results
for non-russian cyrillic letters. These errors have been reflected into
the PDF version, too.

Just to ‘spend some time’, I tried to correct it, but there appears to
be several Kazakh 8-bit codepages. As I do not read Kazakh myself, I am
not 100% whether the result is correct or not. If you read kazakh
(UTF-8), you might download

to proofread the result. When correct, we would return it to UNHCRC.
