    Chinese Language
    i just brought a macbook pro today and transfered all my songs over, but the charecters for my chinese songs come up wierd and stuff that don't make any sense, anywayz with windows i used to change the language for non unicode programs to traditional chinese and the whole system would still be in english, now on a mac i have t change the whole language to get the song titles correct :/ and as soon as i change it back to english language the song titles go!!! what i am asking is does anybody have a solution to correct the chinese names and still keep the system language to english??

    heres a screen shot of what the wierd charecters look like

    Open up your Font Book.app and verify that all the Chinese fonts that were included with Snow Leopard are OK. (Applications, Font Book.app) You may have to go thru all of them to check which ones are Chinese.

    You should not have to install the Chinese language options in order to properly read out Chinese characters either on web sites or music. However, the fonts must be installed in order to do so. I have music from Korea and go to Korean web sites and do not have the Korean language installed.

    Verify the Chinese fonts with the Font Book.app. If Chinese web sites display OK, chances are your fonts are OK. But check them anyway. You should know which fonts are being used in the music you play - verify them. If they verify OK, then the problem is elsewhere.
