If you install the English locale version of the Asia game client, you can only display Roman letters, Cyrillic letters, and Thai. Everything else will be boxes.

If you install the Japanese locale version of the Asia game client, you can display Roman letters, Cyrillic letters, Japanese Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana, and Korean Hangul. Simplified Chinese and Thai will appear as boxes.

If you install the Traditional Chinese locale version of the Asia game client, you can display Roman letters, Cyrillic letters, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, and Japanese Kanji/Hiragana/Katakana. Thai and Korean Hangul will display as boxes.

I'm not sure about the Thai and Korean versions of the game, because I have not tried those yet.

Here let me share you mine.

  1. Go to where you installed WoWS. Find a folder called res
  2. Open locale_config.xml with notepad or something
  3. If you are using English, and want to support Japanese, Edit this particular row into something that I bolded. (For other languages just change it accordingly)

Restart your game and voila, now you can read the Japanese character instead of white boxes, while in full English interface

You don't create new line, just modify the existing one.

If you are using English UI, and want to see Chinese characters, you do it like this:
