HOW TO USE MICROSOFT WINDOWS

TO TYPE IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES


WINDOWS 8 (Click here.)

WINDOWS 7

Here are two pages from Microsoft:

Install-or-change-a-display-language

The-Language-bar-overview

The information is a bit confusing.  What you need to know is that after you install the Language Bar you may need to click on it to further fine tune its operation or else it won't work, particularly for Asian languages like Chinese and Japanese.

VISTA

For Vista click here for Microsoft help.

WINDOWS XP

Windows XP is designed from the ground up for international use.  A whole series of  foreign languages are already loaded or available from the WIndows CD.

To install Asian languages, go to the control panel and click on "regional and language options."

Then click on the "languages" tab at the top.

Check the two boxes, they are labeled "Install files for complex language script" and "Install files for East Asian Languages."

Click the "Apply" button at the bottom right of the window.  You may be prompted to restart the computer.

Next return to the "languages" tab in the "regional language options" icon in the control panel.  This time click the "details" button.

A new window will pop up, click on the "Add" button.  Here you can add whatever languages you want.  The best part is that it will only install it as
a language font, it will not effect the language settings of your computer or what language Windows displays.

After you have selected the language you want, click okay.  Again you may be asked to restart the computer.

Repeat this for any languages that you want to install.

Lastly, return to the "Details" window and this time click on the button called "language bar" at the bottom. Ensure that the first, third and fourth
boxes are checked.

After you have restarted once again,  at the bottom of your screen you will see a button that says "EN" or "English"  click that button and you will see the list of languages that you installed.  Select the one that you want, and begin typing!  When you want to go back to English, just click on the button again and select English.  Again, this feature will not change the language of the tool bar or start button, but only the input language.
