this is quick a big topic and a big issue, 1st thing you do is to change the locale

depending on which coding you like, change the line in /etc/sysconfig/i18n:

LANG=zh_TW.UTF-8

or

LANG=zh_TW.Big5

or

LANG=zh_CN.UTF-8

are you going to c chinese webpage, change the encoding for the page you are viewing by: view -> character encoding. there are several encoding methods commonly used presently, so you can choose between "GB2312" and "Big5".

if you want a more in-depth level, hope this article suits you

Hello I have been trying to solve the same problem for quite some time now (viewing Chinese without changing the locale ie I would like to see Chinese files without having all my menus in Chinese). I know that I can see the Chinese files if I change the locale, but I dont want all the menus in Chinese. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated. Thnx so much ^^
