7 Language Support From ONELAN

Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief

As ONELAN say in their press release on this “Many Digital Signage companies still rely just on their standard English interface and expect the user to adapt”, here we see their Net-Top-Box solution version 6.1 with the option of seven languages: English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Arabic and Japanese..

This new software release of course also addresses the need for displaying foreign character sets, dates and clocks correctly on screen and this ranges fromdiacritic marks e.g. a circumflex in French to an Arabic text RSS feed crawling in the proper left to right direction

We are told that ‘Internationalisation’ is actually much more complex than at first might appear – for these 7 languages there were 65 country variations!
