When you are dealing with internationalized content, being able to display the content of your application is critical. Carefully
consider the following:
- Operating system
- Your operating system needs to be capable of displaying double-byte characters in the system dialog boxes and menus used by
- Silk Test Classic
- You need to be concerned about displaying your content in the
Silk Test Editor and the
Silk Test Classic dialog boxes.
- Application under test
- You need to have a font installed that is capable of displaying the content of your application. If you have multiple languages
represented in your application, you will need a font that spans these languages.
- If your application is web-based, make sure that you are using a browser that supports your content, that the browser is
configured to display your content, and that you have the necessary fonts installed to display your application.
- Complex scripts (languages)
- Silk Test Classic does not support complex scripts such as the bi-directional languages Hebrew and Arabic. These are languages that require
special processing to display and edit because the characters are not laid out in a simple linear progression from left to
right, as are most western European characters.
