    Hello,
    im using WP in my own server( hisubash.com/tblog/index.php), i installed it using fantastico,
    and am using UTF-8, but i cant use my local language,
    when i use unicode text, its display like ????.

    But, in your server ( hisubash.wordpress.com) its work perfectly.
    that means i can set the languge ( ta-tamil)

    Now,
    How can i change my whole WP like that local language WP?
    i mean everything wants to change to local language like that same ur server WP.
    thanks in advance,

    hi there, this section gives a lot of advice on language files,
    http://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_in_Your_Language
    also by googling tamil translations for wordpress, i think you will find several.
    hope this helps.

    You did what?
    When displaying ????? or other similar things - it is always a problem with encoding mismatch.

    Hi,
    I've installed WP 2.6 through Fantastico and got the same problems with UTF-8. Writing a post in Ukrainian and Russian Languages resulted in Question Marks like that: "?????????? ??????". I tried everything and nothing helped, so, lastly, I downloaded the same WP 2.6 from your web site (wordpress.org), installed it and everything worked perfect!
    Just curious: Is that the bug in Fantastico or problems with my Hosting? (Because I completely reinstalled WP through Fantastico several times that did not help...)
    But hopefully everything works fine now with installation downloaded from wordpress.org. If You've got problems use that instead.

    I have the same problem with my WP. It replaces my text in Persian with question marks. Does anyone know how it can be fixed? I mean a way other than re-installing WordPress.

    Ok. The problem is the way the database is set to Western languages instead of UTF-8.
    Use this plugin to fix the problem:
    utf8-database-converter
