Conversions Between Simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese
Requirements and Suggestions on OS Language
Suggested Languages: Simplified
Chinese and Traditional Chinese. In a Chinese operating system, the performance
of STGuru's CHS-CHT conversion engine can be fully assured.
Korean: STGuru can convert
Japanese: There could be around
0.05% errors in Chinese character conversion.
English and other languages:
There could be around 0.1% errors in Chinese character conversion.
All the above-mentioned errors
are caused by the wrong splitting of individual Chinese characters in a
Chinese string by a non-Chinese operating system. Sometimes there is a whole
string of unrecognizable characters, but the reason may actually be that the
first character of the string is wrongly split in the middle, so all the
characters after this one are split wrongly as a result.
1) If you only use STGuru
temporarily and do small conversions, you can add an English space before
each wrong Chinese character (or if it is a string of unrecognizable
characters, before the first Chinese character of the string) in the source
text before conversion. When conversion is complete, remove the extra spaces
2) If you have a big conversion
job and/or you have a strict requirement on conversion quality, you need to
change the kernel language of your operating system to Simplified Chinese or
Traditional Chinese. You can make the change in Windows XP, Vista or 7, but
not in Windows 2000, because kernel language switch is not supported by
Windows XP: Control Panel ->
Regional and Language Options -> Advanced -> Language for non-Unicode
programs -> Chinese (PRC) (CHS) or Chinese (Taiwan/Hong Kong) (CHT)
Windows Vista: Control Panel
-> Regional and Language Options -> Administrative -> Language for
non-Unicode programs -> Chinese (Simplified, PRC) or Chinese (Traditional,
Windows 7: Control Panel ->
Regional and Language Options -> Change display language -> Administrative
-> Language for non-Unicode programs -> Chinese (Simplified, PRC) or Chinese
(Traditional, Taiwan/Hong Kong)
After the change is submitted,
if the required Chinese language pack has not been installed, Windows will
first guide you to install it. Then, whether you need to install the Chinese
language pack or not, the system will prompt you to restart the computer in
order for the change to take effect.
/ RAM Requirements
for the STGuru installation pack after installation is about 8 MB for standard
edition (full version), and less for other editions. Usually a trial version is
several hundred KB less than a full version.
RAM to run at least one instance of STGuru is 16 MB. You may need more RAM for
heavy-load operations, such as converting large files/text or counting a big

Limitations and Advices on Using STGuru on Windows 95/98/Me
(obsolete, we do not support 95/98/Me any more)
95/98/Me are not high capacity operating systems. There are some limitations for
the current version of STGuru to run on Windows 95/98/Me:
You cannot open as many instances of STGurus as you use it on NT/2000/XP/2003. In
current version, you can open at most 4 STGurus concurrently.
There are limitations in the size of the text you can edit or read in the upper or
lower edit area. If you try to open a large file, only the first 60 KB of its
content can be read into STGuru. And you can edit / copy into less
text if you use two edit areas together. We advice you to edit no more than totally
50 KB text in the two edit areas.
