Reading Cyrillic on ProZ site and elsewhere on the Net Apr 5, 2002

Select View.

Select Encoding.

Select \"More\", and from the list shown, select \"Cyrillic (Windows)\".

You should now be able to read Cyrillic but a few characters in Latin will not come out properly, so if you are working in a Latin alphabet again, repeat the procedure but select \"Western European (Windows)\".

This usually works, but sometimes people use another encoding such as K018U. If Cyrillic Windows doesn\'t work, try the other Cyrillic encodings and you may find one that works. But there are some which cannot be decoded in this way, so if you come across one of these, the only thing you can do is ask the person who asked the question to put it in a different encoding.

Hi,



It\'s not enough to do the automatic download (from Microsoft), but in case of ProZ you also have to do the above steps in your browser (I assumed you have Internet Explorer).



The reason is that the character set is not specified (or specified as Western European) in the ProZ pages\' HTML codes, so hence it\'s not automatic. So when you\'re on a page with Russian-seeming characters, just perform the above steps!



Hope this helps.
