WordPress users: how to publish in non-western characters?

I’ve finally found a simple solution on how to publish in non-western characters like Chinese, Japanese or Korean. After looking for some plugins, most of them are for translating languages or require some kind of modifications to the template, which I thought was totally unnecessary. So I remained patient, keep looking and eventually did I find a way!

There are four easy steps to accomplish this.

1) go to the wp-config file in your wordpress directory.

2) you will see this line:

define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

3) put a comment, //, to the beginning of lines:

//define(‘DB_CHARSET’, ‘utf8’);

This deactivates character encoding in the database that holds entries.

4) Save and exit.

And you’re all done! happy multilingual-ing. :-)
