If your application supports languages that use specific character sets (Greek, Russian, and so on), you must enter the translation of the multilingual messages by using these specific character sets.
WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile allow you to automatically manage the use of specific character sets in the editor.
Indeed, as soon as the edit cursor of the mouse is located in an input area of a language that uses a specific character set, the corresponding input language (character set used by the keyboard) is automatically displayed.
Therefore, if a text is entered in the "Russian" area of the description window of a control, the Russian character set will be automatically used by the keyboard.
Reminder: To use specific character sets, the files corresponding to the desired character sets must be installed in the Windows region settings (control panel).

Remark: If you do not want to automatically enable the input language (language used by the keyboard) corresponding to the current language:
- Go to the "Translation" tab in the options (on the "Home" pane, in the "Environment" group, expand "Options" and select "General options of WINDEV/WEBDEV/WINDEV Mobile").
- Uncheck "Enable automatic change of input regional settings".
