Using Unicode characters



Fonts in Unicode format can only be used with operator interfaces of the ET/MT-3x6 and ET/MT-2x6 SERIES !


The following description of the installation of languages is based on the example of Windows XP. The installation for other Windows versions may differ from this description. Depending on which display type you have selected (classical or category), menus and dialogues may also vary.


In order to be able to use a Unicode character for a certain language, you first have to install this language in Windows. This is not necessary if you work on a computer that runs Windows in this language. In this case, the language fonts are already installed and you can use them.


In order to install additional languages you need the Windows Installation CDs. These are the CDs (or the DVD) you used to install Windows in the first place. These CDs have the source files for the fonts of the various different languages.


Proceed as follows to install additional languages:


Click on Btn_ProgStart to open the start menu.

Click on menu item "Control Panel".








The Control Panel pops up.

On the Control Panel, please click on "Date, Time, Language and Regional Options" and / or "Regional and Language Options".










The dialogue for Regional and Language Options will pop up.




Tick one or two boxes under "Supplemental language support", depending on the language regions for which you wish to install additional languages.


By ticking




you will install files for languages that are written from the right to the left. Installing these languages may have an impact on word processing.


By ticking




you will install languages of the Far Eastern region. This language installation requires approximately 230 MB of hard disk memory.


Now click on the "Advanced" tag. This is where you can select individual languages whose fonts you wish to install.




In the above example we have selected Chinese, Korean and Hebrew. In order to install these languages, click on "Apply". You will now be asked to insert the Windows Installation CD.




When the CD has been inserted and recognized by the system, the following message window with progress bar will pop up.




When the installation is complete, the following message will pop up:




Click on "Yes" to restart the computer immediately. We recommend you save all data to avoid any data loss before rebooting the computer.


Please note:

1.Newly installed languages can only be used after the computer has been rebooted !
2.Not every font will support all characters of all languages.


Please refer to the Character Map for an overview.


Register language as service:

As a next step you have to implement the languages in Windows as a service. For this, click on the Language bar with the right mouse button




or open the dialogue for region and language options.




Clicking on the "Details" button will open the dialogue for "Text Services and Input Languages".




Click on "Add" to select input languages which you wish to install as additional services. Repeat this for every single additional input language.


By clicking on the "language bar" button you can configure the settings for the language bar.




Tick the box "Display language bar on the desktop" in order to have direct access to the installed languages and to switch between them. All other options are to do with the visual display of the language bar.
