(:title Language Support in Config Files:)

Some components of PaperCut, such as the [[https://www.papercut.com/tour/print-release-stations/|print release station]] and [[https://www.papercut.com/products/ng/manual/ch-user-client.html|user client tool]] use config files to customize their behavior.  These files have the @@.properties@@ file extension.

If you experience problems entering non-Latin characters into a config file, such as changing the title of a print release station and using Chinese, Japanese or Korean text, you will need to convert the text to "escape codes" first.  To do this:
# Visit [[http://people.w3.org/rishida/tools/conversion/|this online unicode converter]] page, and type or paste your text into the top text field (labelled @@Mixed input@@).
# Click @@Convert@@.
# Copy the text from the bottom-left text field (labelled @@JavaScript escapes@@).  It should look like a series of "''\u30d7\u30ea...''".
# Paste/type this text into your PaperCut config file.
