Unhappy how to simply display chinese characters in Epub and txt?

Hello,

I want to say how to not convert files into the T3 ,and displaying chinese characters?

I think the T3 is a international ereader, why not support chinese character, such as GB code and Big5 code in e-books.

so i don't know how to setup the device.

thanks.

Although T3 does not provide Chinese user interface, it can handle ePubs in Chinese. The same goes with T2.

They do when you buy it in that other country. If you want a Chinese version you would need to buy it in China not Japan or North America. It doesn't make financial sense for a company to offer firmware in all languages in all the countries that the item is sold in. And I don't believe there is an option to change it from one to another. I think I remember someone asking a similar question on here before.

So if you have the Japanese version, you're not going to get Chinese on it certainly not with the help of Sony anyways.

For the PRS-T1 (at least) the Japanese firmware was significantly different to the English firmware. For a start, in Japan they were not using epub, so the Japanese firmware supported a different book format.

I doubt the Japanese firmware will have an option for English.

The Japanese 650 can be set in Japanese or in English and from what I've seen in store the T1 was behaving the same way (going to settings/general settings/language/...). But maybe the demo units were different from the ones actually sold.

It's not complex actually. Simply use calibre, add some CSS as default when converting epub can fix the problem.

Please refer to the following page for reference:

Notes: Source file need to be in unicode/utf-8
