Display non-english characters

Hi,
How can i display Japanese, Chinese characters in a java application or applet? do i need some special tools?
Thanks,
eileen

Since Java supports unicode you don't need special
tools only a font which is able to display japanese or
Chinese charaters. For Windows:
http://www.hclrss.demon.co.uk/unicode/fonts.html
You can display a unicode char with /uXXXX have a look
at
http://www.unicode.org/charts/
Or you already got a file with unicode characters....
have funThanks for your help.
But how can i put something down by checking that Unicode table from time to time? That's almost impossible...
suppose i've put some Japanese characters into a file, what type of file should i save it as? save it as a html file or something else?
and if i want the context of a label to be "xxxxx"(in Chinese), what should i do? JLabel label = new JLabel("???") how can i put some chinese characters to replace "???" ?
and how can i input Japanese/chinese characters under Mandrake?
Thank you very much,
eileen2

  • Linux or Java? :Cannot display non english characters

    hi,
    i am trying to implement a GUI that supports both turkish and english. user can switch between them on the fly.
    public class SampleGUI {
    JButton trTranslate = new JButton(); /* Button, to translate into turkish */
    /* Label text will be translated */
    JLabel label = new JLable("Text to Be Translated!");
    trTranslate.addActionListener (new ActionListener(){
    void ActionPerformed(ActionEvent e){
    String language="tr";
    String country="TR";
    Locale currentLocale;
    ResourceBundle messages;
    currentLocale = new Locale(language, country);
    messages = ResourceBundle.getBundle("TranslateMessages",currentLocale);
    /* get from properties file turkish match of "TextTranslate "*/
    label.setText(messages.getString("TextToTranslate"));
    Finally, my problem is my application does not display non english chracaters like "� ş � ğ � i" in GUI after triggering translation.However, if i do not use ResourceBundle and instead assign directly the turkish match for that label (i.e. label.setText("şşşşş")), GUI successfully displays turkish characters. what may be the problem?
    ps : i am using redhat linux8.0, j2sdk1.4.1. current locale = "tr_TR.UTF-8". in /etc/sysconfig/keyboard , keyTable = "trq". There seems no problem for me as i can input and output
    turkish characters. OS supports this. Also jvm gets the current encoding from OS.It seems as if there is a problem in reading properties file in inappropriate encoding.
    thanx for dedicating ur time and effort,

  • My Firefox cannot display non-English characters, even though I have tried every language encoding I have!

    I am a big fan of Japanese songs and websites, so I was very disappointed when I saw that Firefox could not handle any non-English characters. I have tried every encoding I can, but none work and I just see boxes with numbers and letters inside. I have only just got this older laptop for my birthday - my old laptop which ran Windows Vista and had Firefox 4 had no trouble at all. Please help me!

    hello muoshui, please enter '''about:config''' into the firefox location bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named '''network.http.accept-encoding''' - right-click and reset that entry to the default value.
    if this does not resolve the issue already, please also go through the steps offered at [[Websites look wrong or appear differently than they should]].

  • Missing/corrupted non-english characters in Preview

    I know there have been posts on this recently, but this is such a significant problem that I thought it worth keeping live.
    Preview does not display non-english characters in PDFs properly. Things like greek characters are either displayed as the english equivalent or are missing or something else more bizzare. This happens on my MBP and my partners MB, both running Leopard. Acrobat, Word etc have no problems. I had no issues with Tiger
    I would like to report this directly to Apple but I couldn't find how...

    Suggestions
    1) Try with NLS_LANG as

    2) Make a paramform and enter via paramform (unencoded)

  • Non-English characters not displaying correctly - Serious Issue

    My corporate email is on a Lotus Domino server with Lotus Traveler installed.
    I have set my PlayBook (with OS 2) up to syncronize with the corporate email trough Active Sync (see http://alturl.com/qh3nn), which works perfectly.
    I have however noticed that in some emails special non-english characters are displayed correctly but in some emails special non-english characters are displayed as a black diamond with a question mark inside.
    This is of course a serious issue as most non English speaking countries use some special characters.
    When trying to understand this problem how can I analyse the emails and see what character set is being used?
    And of course better; has someone solved this?

    I am having the same problem. Is there any update available?

  • Non-English characters

    Hello, I have read several times that since Java uses Unicode, it solves the problems of non-English characters automatically or something like that.
    But my app is not working as expected. Would someone help please?
    I have a client/server combo written in Java. The server can send messages in English or Japanese. The Japanese messages are hard-coded as String literals in the server source code. On the client side, they are displayed on a JEditorPane. But the Japanese characters are all garbled. The OS on the server side and client side are, of course, different.
    My supposition, which is obviously wrong as it is not working, is that since both ends of communication are Java app, I need not worry about any encoding conversions for String literals.
    Suggest me what is wrong here?

    How is the required encoding/decoding supposed to be done?
    When I didn't worry about non-English characters, I did the following, which WORKED.
    // SENDER side
    Socket socket ;
    PrintWriter     out = new PrintWriter(socket.getOutputStream(),true);
    String outMessage = "my message";
    out.println(outMessage);//RECEIVER
    Socket socket ;
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(socket.getInputStream()));
    String inMessage =  in.readLine();When non-English characters are involved, I did the following, which DID NOT WORK. Please someone correct me.
    // SENDER side
    Socket socket ;
    PrintWriter     out = new PrintWriter(socket.getOutputStream(),true);
    String outMessage = "my message";
    String utfString = new String(outMessage.getBytes(),"UTF-8");
    out.println(utfString);//RECEIVER
    Socket socket ;
    InputStreamReader ins = new InputStreamReader(clientSocket.getInputStream(),"UTF-8");
    BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(ins);
    String inMessage =  in.readLine();The received message is still garbled.

  • Encoding non english characters with utf 8 on jsp (Critical!!)

    I am inserting hebrew characters from JSP into oracle db and everything is fine until this point. But when I try to retrieve the information from the database, the characters are not displayed properly (I get some garbage characters). I am sure that the data stored in the database is correct, but not sure why there is a problem in displaying the data in the JSP.
    I came across a thread on TSS
    http://www.theserverside.com/discussions/thread.tss?thread_id=28944
    and followed the suggestions given there like having
    <%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=UTF-8" pageEncoding="UTF-8" %>
    <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">and also this
    <%
    //Some JDBC and sql statement query UTF-8 data and then ...
    String str = rs.getString("utf8_data");
    str = new String(str.getBytes("ISO-8859-1"),"UTF-8");
    %>
    <%= str %>Now, the data getting displayed is partly correct, I mean to say, some characters are still coming as squares.
    Any ideas will be of great help.

    even i doubt the database charset for this issue. But what I dont understand is how only certain hebrew characters are getting stored properly and why others are corrupted?
    Also, can anyone let me know how i can view the Non-English characters present in the database directly, as TOAD is not able to display them

  • Non-english characters in sqlplus

    Friends,
    9.0.1,10.2.0.1
    CAn the non-english characters be displayed in sqlplus prompt?
    I have to print the data with some hindi charcaters like name from the report generated via proc.
    What is teh workaround for this?
    Thanks

    Hi,
    I have RH Linux 7.3.
    Here is my situation.
    I have some tables that have some columns.In these columns i need to store data in hindi.
    The database character set(nls_characterset) is US7ASCII.
    The datatypes of the columns is varchar2 type.
    The tables are accessed through Pro*c and the proc code generates the report.
    The data in these reports needs to be printed out and the corresponding data has to be in hindi.
    So i have to do two things
    1) On query the tables, the user should see hindi data along with english data.
    2) The printed report should also contain hindi data.
    Questions:
    1) If i change the charcater set by the command:
    alter database character set AL32UTF8;
    and OS locale to UTF-8
    Would these chnages solve the purpose?
    2) Or do i need to recreate the database with AL32UTF8 and exp/imp all the data?
    3)Any other advice/option?
    Thanks

    I would suspect it would work in vim only if vim supported the UTF8 character set. I have no idea if it does.
    Here is one blurb I found on google:
    USING UNICODE IN THE GUI
    The nice thing about Unicode is that other encodings can be converted to it
    and back without losing information. When you make Vim use Unicode
    internally, you will be able to edit files in any encoding.
    Unfortunately, the number of systems supporting Unicode is still limited.
    Thus it's unlikely that your language uses it. You need to tell Vim you want
    to use Unicode, and how to handle interfacing with the rest of the system.
    Let's start with the GUI version of Vim, which is able to display Unicode
    characters. This should work:
         :set encoding=utf-8
         :set guifont=-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1
    The 'encoding' option tells Vim the encoding of the characters that you use.
    This applies to the text in buffers (files you are editing), registers, Vim
    script files, etc. You can regard 'encoding' as the setting for the internals
    of Vim.
    This example assumes you have this font on your system. The name in the
    example is for X-Windows. This font is in a package that is used to enhance
    xterm with Unicode support. If you don't have this font, you might find it
    here:

  • Formula to show non english characters from clob in crystal report

    Hi
    I am using the database Oracle 11g with a field clob in one of the table that i want to show in the crystal report
    But the problem is when i put the clob field in crystal report it is outputting the results perfectly for English characters but not for the Arabic ones and returning the string like (¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿ ¿ ¿¿¿¿¿ ¿¿¿)
    so is there any way to show the arabic (non english) characters perfectly on crystal report with clob field

    Hi Azeem,
    Make sure the arabic font should install in your system.
    Try this:
    Create a text field in your Crystal Report (a label).
    Place Arabic characters into that field (just by typing them into it on the report definition).
    Run the report. If they display correctly then its probably not Crystal, but rather would point to an issue in the data retrieval and supply to Crystal via your dataset (or whatever datasource you are using).
    If they don't display - then its definitely Crystal.

  • Can't CF use non English characters in URLs ???? (critical for SEO)

    Hi all,
    I want to use non English characters (Greek characters) for folders of the URLs.
    eg   http://www.mysite.com/Φάκελος/index.cfm
    where "Φάκελος" is a non English word (Greek).
    When the called page is simple HTML  eg   www.mysite.com/Φάκελος/index.HTM
    it's displayed just fine.
    When the called page is CF page  eg   www.mysite.com/Φάκελος/index.CFM
    I get a "FILE NOT FOUND" error.
    In the page where the link exists everything is UTF-8.
    What's the problem ? Can't CF use non English characters in URLs ????
    It's critical for SEO issues.
    I use CF9.  Any ideas ???

    I don't have this setting in the email application. But as I know, html with Exchange is working only with the 2007 version, my server is still 2003 so I think in my case it's plain text only.
    But I'm telling again: good old (and now starting to miss) E60 with MfE worked very well!

  • Encrypting non-English characters

    Hi,
    I have this application which has to do the following
    Scenario (i)
    - Read ENCODED string SE from Network Source NS1 (Native,Non-JAVA)
    - Decode SE to SD using the same charset as NS1
    - Apply some transformation to SD to get SD2
    - Encode SD2 to get SE2 using the same charset as Network Source NS2
    (Native, Non-JAVA)
    - Send SE2 to NS2
    - NS2 gets what it expects without any problems :))
    Scenario (ii)
    - Read ENCODED string SE from Network Source NS1 (Native,Non-JAVA)
    - Decode SE to SD using the same charset as NS1
    - Apply some transformation to SD to get SD2
    - Get the bytes from SD2 as BSD2
    - Encode BSD2 to get BSE2 using the same charset as Network Source NS2
    (Native, Non-JAVA)
    - Encrypt BSE2 to BSE2_Enc
    - Send BSE2_Enc to NS2 (Native,Non-JAVA)
    - NS2 does not gets what it expects :((
    (It recieves English text OK but it gets ???? for non-English)
    The charset being used is windows-1256 (at NS1,NS2 and my application)
    Encryption is being done using BouncyCastle TwoFish w/ 256 bit keys
    Reading/Writing from/to network is being done over SocketChannel
    Get the bytes from SD2 as BSD2 => byte [] BSD2 = SD2.getBytes()It seems the non-Enlish characters are getting lost when I go SD2.getBytes()
    and they get encrypted as 'lost-non-English characters' ;)
    And when they get decrypted at NS2, they are displayed as 'lost-non-English
    characters' :)) i.e. ??????? .. so on
    Is there a way I can encrypt non-English plain text without losing information ?
    (without having to implement a TwoFish engine in my application itself)

    1) Bytes are not characters. Characters are UNICODE
    and have a byte representation defined by an encoding
    scheme. It is usually wrong to use the default
    encoding given by String.getBytes(). One should realy
    use String.getByte(encoding) eg
    "fred".getBytes("UTF-8");Awwllright ... got that :)) Thanks buddy
    2) Not having access to your code makes it difficult
    but make sure you are not converting encrypted bytes
    to a String using new String(encrypted bytes); No .. I am not doing that.
    3) Again, not having access to your code makes it
    difficult , but when you display your Strings make
    sure that you use a Font that has representations for
    all the UNICODE characters you wish to display. It is
    normal for any character that does not have a valid
    glyph in a gien font to display as a box.That infrastructure exists and is working fine ... as I mentioned
    this is working OK when plain text is being used.
    The problem was with using the getBytes() rather than getBytes("windows-1256")
    Its working now ... thanks alot .. again. I wonder how that never occurred to me.
