Play WR Series: Language Enablement
Third episode of this series of short talks on how to develop (and test) World-Ready applications.

What are Encodings and what is Unicode? Why it is not a good idea to "walk" strings a character at a time? What is a Font? What is GB 18030 and why should you care? What are IMEs and how to enable other input languages?
Aldo Donetti, Lead PM in the Developer Division's Globalization team, will introduce you to the concepts of Encodings and Unicode, Fonts, GB 18030, IMEs and will suggest some tips on how to handle some of the issues. More details in future episodes Stay tuned!
