French Chord Names

Added 01 Aug 2005 (last updated 17 Jun 2015)

For use with Sibelius 2.x, Sibelius 3.x, Sibelius 4, Sibelius 4.1, Sibelius 5, Sibelius 6, Sibelius 7.1, Sibelius 7.5, Sibelius 8.x and Sibelius 18.x

This plug-in converts chord symbols text in your score between the French (sol-fa) and standard (Bb = B flat, B = B) conventions for chord symbols. This is useful when e.g. wanting to transpose German chord symbols (convert them to standard chord symbols, transpose, then convert them back to French chord symbols).

Updated 20 October 2014 to mark them as usable through Sibelius 7.5. No code changes were made. Note that the plugin will only work with Legacy Chord Symbols, and that the Engraving Rules-Chord Symbols-Language feature is a better way to show French chord symbol names.
