Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Is it possible to reflect localized text on text render?

Hi, We are experimenting with in-game text render to display HUD elements. We want this text to be localized, so we tested this with Japanese but the displayed Japanese text was corrupted. Does the text render support localization to non-alphabetic language?

Thank you

Product Version: UE 4.12

I just happened to notice this thread. Unfortunately, the text render was originally just a quick way to throw some text into a level (more for designer notes and such) and was not designed with localization in mind.

You want to have HUD text in the world, correct? I'd suggest having a look at Widget Components. They are still considered experimental, but they use UMG and vector fonts so you should have an easier time localizing.
