Babel Fish and Chinese and Korean translations
One of the teachers within my school wants to use Babelfish as it has Chinese and Korean translations. The problem is it doesn't display the Chinese and Korean characters, it just displays squares! (please see attachment) Bablefish works ok with other languages just not those that uses symbols instead of abc etc. Do I have to install the Chinese and Korean languages or something? I'm using XP on these machines.
The extra factor is on my Vista PC it works fine and I have no extra languages installed! I tried a bit of googling but not found a lot, any one else had this problem or know of another better translation site?

You will need to install Chinese and Korean languages for Windows XP.
To do this:
Control Panel -> Regional and Language Options
On the Languages Tab ensure Install files for complex script... is ticked and Install files for East Asian languages is ticked. You may need to reboot at this point, but apply and windows will go and install stuff.
After a reboot go back in, and check the Advanced Tab, if Japanese, Chinese e.t.c. are not selected, ensure they're selected e.t.c. Apply, Restart and you will be able to see the scripts that you want.
Additionally, if they need to INPUT in these languages you can set up the IME's from the Details... button on the Languages tab.
As for Vista, it probably comes with unicode/language packs pre-installed, just not the IME's.
Hope that helps!

Don't you need a language pack for IE as well?

Hmm Weirdness, is the page in the right encoding? (Right click the page, or view menu in Internet Explorer -> Encoding -> Japanese (Auto) if showing Japanese) failing that, I can't think of much more.
If you want to test that your fonts installed correctly, you can download the attached test document which I've prepared that lets you see if you can render Chinese, Japanese and Korean, if you've got problems reading this, then theres a problem with your Language installation, if not then it's probably something else.

Thanks for the replies people still having no luck though even added the languages to internet explorer settings.... can't understand what I'm missing.
Plus your txt file doesn't display correctly on the PC so something is missing, it's ok on my PC though
