Japanese display

  fazza8 14:27 30 Mar 2006

I work in a school and we had a Japanese assistant who changed the display on my computer so that it would show Japanese characters. I teach Spanish and now when I go on sites with Spanish words that have accents they are displayed as ideograms. Does anyone know how I can change it back so that the correct display is back on my machine?

First, try: control panel > regional and language options, and make sure that you have the correct option selected in both. This may work but it sounds as if your problem could be a bit more complex. Let us know if it works.

If you are using Internet explorer.

From the help page (It may be just a case of removing Japanese from the list)

To specify another language for webpage content

Some websites offer their content in several languages. To specify which language you prefer to view webpages in, follow these steps.

In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

Click the General tab, and click Languages.
Click Add.

Select the language you want to add, and then click OK.

Repeat steps 3 and 4 to add all of the languages you would like.

Organize the languages by order of preference. If a website offers multiple languages, content will appear in the language that is highest on the list.

It's my school machine so I'll give it a go in the morning. Thanks
