How do I download...

Postby sakura » Sun 02.20.2005 11:32 am

How do I download Japanese Text so that I can view it on my computer? I used to have it but it disappeared. I once went to a website to download it but I forgot where. Where did everyone else download it from? Please help, thanks :)

In your browser try going to 'view' then 'encoding' then 'Japanese Shift-JIS'. If you don't have it downloaded it should then ask you to download it.

I switched it to JIS, but it still won't work
I may be normal but I don\'t think so.
I\'ve been studying Japanese for 4 years, but forgot 2 years of it!! aghhh stupid spanish class sucked all of my japanese memory out...
Oh well. Expect me to correct people on thier grammar etc.

What is your operating system and browser? You are talking about viewing Japanese not writing right?

I found out the problem for me: i was using Netscape. Download it when you first come to the site, click install. Make sure you are on windows or something else than netscape.

Is the site in Shift-JIS? I thought it was in Unicode...

You could also download the japanese Globalime to your computer. It can be found on http://www.Microsoft.com.

Assuming you're using WinXP

Control panel -> Regional and language options -> Languages tab -> Install files for East Asian languages

If you want to type japanese,
Details box -> Add -> Select japanese

Other Windows might be something similar.
