Q. How can I paste Japanese (or Korean, Chinese, etc.) Word documents into EmEditor and save as text files?

If Windows does not display Japanese, Korean, or Chinese fonts properly, you will need to go to Control Panel, select Regional and Language Options, click the Languages tab, and then check Install files for East Asian languages.

Open your Word document, select the text you want to copy, and then press CTRL + C to copy the text to the Clipboard.

Launch a new EmEditor window and press CTRL + V to paste the Clipboard contents to the EmEditor window. You should see the text in Japanese (or Korean, Chinese, etc.). If you cannot see the text properly, select Japanese (or Korean, Chinese, etc.) from the Font Category sub menu under the View menu. If you still cannot see it properly, select the Font command under the View menu, and select an appropriate font, for instance, MS Gothic if it is Japanese.

To save the document, select the Save As command under the File menu, and make sure you select either Unicode or UTF-8 from the Encoding drop-down list box. You may also select a locale-specific encoding such as Japanese (Shift-JIS) if you wish.
