Internationalization Features of Windows CE

Bill Hall - SimulTrans, LLC

Intended Audience: Software Engineer, Engineering Managers
Session Level: Intermediate

Windows CE is Microsoft's version of Win32 for hand-held, palm-sized, automobile and other similar uses. Unlike many such operating systems, Windows CE was born fully developed with respect to Internationalization support. Its best known such feature is the use of Unicode as its character set, but most of the rest of the Win32 NLS API also carries over, albeit with some limitations. In this talk we combine presentation materials with demonstration programs to explore Windows with Internationalization in mind.
