UTF-8 Languages not showing



  • After changing english to utf8 languages like chinese and japanese. I see ??????? instead of the original text.

    eg. in lang_jp.ini file
    facebookButtonTooltip=フェイスブック
    myLanguageLabel=日本語

    I am using UTF-8 encoding without BOM

    Thanks.



  • Make sure you save the file with UTF-8 encoding, use a code editor (Coda, Komodo, EditPlus), simple editors like "notepad" won't work.



  • Thanks. I got it fixed. I am wondering if i could set the default loading language to lang_xx.ini rather than using lang_en.ini as the default and let users pick another language.



  • in config.xml, set the locale to any language of your preference:

    config.xml

     <config><language>en_US</language>
    
         <serviceurl>../registration.php</serviceurl>
         <configurl>../configuration.php</configurl></config> 
    
    


  • @'Govido':

    in config.xml, set the locale to any language of your preference:

    config.xml

     <config><language>en_US</language>
    
         <serviceurl>../registration.php</serviceurl>
         <configurl>../configuration.php</configurl></config> 
    
    

    Pardon me. I don't see any config.xml. However i see



  • I also want to change some of the text in config.php to utf8 but once config.php is converted to utf8.. the entire script stops loading.

    Please advise.
    Thanks.


    yeah~ I just got it fixed by converting config.php to utf8 without BOM. :)



  • For others with similar issue, use a code editor that is capable of saving different encodings (Coda, Komodo, EditPlus, …)
