article describes how to change the language in Windows XP. Setting the
language does not change the language of Windows menus and dialogs, but
it does allow you to display text in other languages and to enter text
in other languages. Some languages (typically Asian languages) will not
appear correctly in the eWebEditPro menus and dialogs
the default language matches the language of the eWebEditPro locale XML
data. Multiple languages will appear in the editor's content Window
regardless of the language chosen for the menus and dialogs.
Changing the language does not
change the language of the
menus and dialogs of Windows or Windows applications like Internet
Explorer. For more information on changing the language of Windows
itself and IE, see the references below.
Language settings in Windows 95/98/Me are significantly different and
beyond the scope of this article. Windows NT does not support fully
changing the language from English to Asian. The native version of
Windows NT is required to use Japanese, Chinese, or Korean.
Set a default language of the system to match the language you wish
to display. You may need to install the language from the Windows Setup
CD-ROM. You may need to restart Windows after selecting a new system
