 +Usage: **SET** **TRANSLATION** <​character translation table>
 +
 +The TRANSLATION variable defines a character translation table. ​ By default,
 +ircII assumes that all text processed over the network is in the ISO 8859/1
 +map, also known as Latin-1. ​ This is identical to standard ASCII, except that
 +it is extended with additional characters in the range 128-255. ​ Many
 +environments by default use the Latin-1 map, such as X Windows, MS Windows,
 +AmigaDOS, and modern ANSI terminals including Digital VT200, VT300, VT400
 +series and MS-Kermit. ​ However, many older environments use non-standard
 +extensions to ASCII, and yet others use 7-bit national replacement sets.
 +
 +Some available settings for the TRANSLATION variable:
 +
 +^             8-bit sets:                                                           ^

 +|  DEC_MCS ​        |DEC Multinational Character Set. VAX/​VMS. ​ VT320'​s and other 8-bit Digital terminals use this set by default, but I recommend changing to Latin-1 in the terminal Set-Up. ​  |
