Thread: input text for Chinese version

    Default input text for Chinese version

    I am compiling a Chinese Bible version for BW8. The file is in Unicode (UTF-16LE). I understand from the "Compiling Version Databases" help file that I need to use ASCII text. Can somebody tell me what is the easiest way to convert to ASCII text?

    To my knowledge, ASCII only includes Latin character set and not Chinese characters.

    In case of Chinese Bible text, it would be safest to save the text in unicode 8-utf text file format, and Bible Works should be able to display characters correctly. utf-8 works for both simplified and traditional Chinese characters, even on Western Window systems.

    Users need to add Chinese simplified and traditional language support on Western Window systems via Control Panel/Languages and Regional Settings.

    I am working with Chinese texts almost each day; so I know a bit the problems, and it (mostly) works well on my system (Windows XP Professional).
    Good luck!

    Default input text for Chinese version

    I am using a O2 Atom Pure English Version and can not display and input Chinese. 1) Want to get a free Chinese Software, 2) a Chinese/English Dictionary or English Dictionary. If there is no free download, where to buy? Thanks.
