East Asian Language Windows 10

Unicode is a character encoding standard designed to support characters used in most languages of the world.

TestLeft supports Unicode, so, you can test applications with the user interface in different languages:

  • You can simulate user actions, such as keyboard input, over Unicode applications.

  • You can post Unicode messages to the test log.

  • UI Spy shows the properties and captions of Unicode application windows correctly.

I just recently got a new laptop installed with windows7 and including windows media player 12. How do you make windows media player 12 able to view/display Chinese or other east asian languages? I was able to do this on xp and the previous editions of windows media player by simply changing language option for non-unicode programs/system locale. Use the Add a language feature to download and install another language for Windows 10 so you can view menus, dialog boxes, and supported apps and websites in that language. To do this: Select the Start button, and then select Settings Time & Language Language. I have been using this particular application for quite some time and today is the first occasion where I decided to give it a go on Windows 10 too. Then came the problem, I realised that the settings to change the system locale ( this is necessary otherwise the chinese characters cannot be displayed) is no longer where it was in Windows 7/8. When you set a new language as the default or primary language in Windows 10, the default input language and method will be changed to this new language accordingly. On some computers however the Windows 10 version pre-installed may not allow you to change the Windows display language. You can contact the PC seller for more information.

Note:TestLeft UI Spy supports only one Unicode language at a time (in addition to English). For example, it can show English characters and either Japanese, or Chinese hieroglyphs.

You can test Unicode applications if the following requirements are met:

  • The application’s language is set as the language for non-Unicode programs on your computer. See below.

  • To test East Asian-language applications, install keyboard layouts with Input Method Editor (IME) support on your computer. To learn how to install IMEs, see the Windows documentation.

Setting the System Language

The Language for non-Unicode programs system option specifies the Unicode language TestLeft supports. To set the option:
