Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

There are many ways to display and print Chinese using i displays and printers. System iNews has, in the last year or so, published articles by me which detail one way (in my case using the built-in Unicode support of the i) to display and print concurrently Chinese, Russian, and English from a RPG application.

For printing I used Host Print Transform (HPT) to a very run of the mill PC printer. My printer file was defined as *AFPDS and the IBM i HPT support took care of the rest. For display I used iSeries Access for Web.

you will need to get a printer that can add an chinese eprom (some sort of memory)..then only u can print in chinese…by default printers can only print in english…

changing client access to chinese will require add on to the 5250 screen…
