No problem, mate. That's why Seven Forums exists.

Well, I do have various input languages already configured . Trouble is, these catalog apps - and not only them - seem not to pay attention. I may type whatever I want and even see the correct spelling in the input line, but the app will only "remember" the "English" text, everything else will later on appear as a bunch of question marks. That's why I thought the Language Pack might help - the app seems to be using the same character table as what's used by the OS for the menus.

You can of course try, but I doubt it works as you want to. Even if it did work, it would we painfully slow and tedious: apply a new language, log off and log in again, check your catalog app, when done apply original language, log off and log in.

Just to finish this thread - I contacted the customer support of my DVD cataloging app, and they say that they do not support unicode characters yet, so while one can choose various languages in the app, one can use only one character set at a time and it has to correspond to the chosen locale. So Kari was right - Language Pack won't help. It's up to the developers to introduce the ability to use multiple character sets in the same database. Not the answer I hoped for, but at least it's clear now.

Good to hear you got more information. One tip to coders, too: not everyone uses English alphabet all the time.
