Hi,

I need to be able to correctly display the Japanese characters in MS Office 07. We need them for a language teacher. I have set the language support up in Control Panel, but the characters are ot being correctly displayed. I get a mix of UK and Japanese when I select Japanese in the language bar.

Many thanks.

I would first make sure that you have Japanese set as an available language in Office.  This is usually located under Start | Programs | Microsoft Office | Microsoft Office Tools | Microsoft Office 2007 Language settings.  You will need to close all office applications and re-open them.

You mentioned that you had Japanese set up in Control Panel.  Did you set up a keyboard AND the non-Unicode character language?  These are available on the second and third tabs in Regional and Language options.

You may need to make sure that Japanese is the language set on the text in the document.
