    how to encode Chinese characters?

    i have downloaded a c++ code from a chinese site,a part of code is like this:

    #define max_x   127       //x方向的节点数量
    #define max_y   127       //y方向的节点数量
    #define t_max   200000    //..环的最大时间步
    #define nu      0.00252   //运动粘度,通过调节黏度改变Reynold数
    as you see the descriptions after // are not in english language and are not displayed correctly ,how can view them in their original chinese format so i can translate them from chinese to english with google translator?
    is there and character encoding in microsoft visual studio 2008?
    thanks in advance

    According to MSDN, you need to install Windows language packs to view international text.

    I personally haven't had a need to do this, so I don't know how well it works. But I'm pretty sure you can just open the file in a word processor (Office has its own language support) and the characters will display correctly. Most Linux distros also have built-in support for other languages. (Yeah, it's probably not a valid reason to get linux just to view these mysterious comments, but hey, it can't hurt.)
