    To understand what Unicode is, it is important to understand the concept behind a character set. When text is entered into and stored on a computer it is stored in binary like all data on a computer is stored. A character set is essentially a table that tells the computer how the binary version of the text turns into actual characters on the screen. Most character sets only have room for a maximum of 255 characters, so originally each language family would have its own character set that mapped the stored data into the characters of that language`s alphabet or symbols. Because character sets were specific to languages that shared the same symbols, and there were often more than one character set for any given language, exchanging text between computers became increasingly difficult as the internet and international exchanges became more widespread. To solve this problem the Unicode character set was created. The intent of Unicode is to offer a single character set that contains a way of representing all characters from as many languages as possible. For most people the technical details are not important, the important thing is that with Unicode it is possible to display almost any character on the same page or document without having to worry about which character set needs to be used.
    To put it simply, Unicode is the character encoding of the future. As time goes on the need for the exchange of text in multiple languages becomes more and more important. For international, multi-lingual communities like ProZ.com this is an absolute essential technology. Here are just a few of the possible texts that can all be displayed at once using unicode:
  • Arabic - يونِكود
  • Cyrillic - Юникод
  • Greek - Γιούνικοντ
  • Chinese - 统一码
  • Hebrew - יוניקוד
  • Japanese - ユニコード
  • Devanagari – यूनिकोड
  • Some countries have several different time zones to choose from. This is often a result of different regions within the country observing different rules about when to adjust clocks for daylight savings time (or whether to observe it at all). If several time zones are listed for your country, choose the one with the GMT offset that matches your current time. If there is more than one time zone with your GMT offset, choose the time zone associated with the nearest large metropolitan city. Some attempt has been made to indicate the most common time zones in these cases. If you are in a jurisdiction with daylight savings time rules that are unusual for your area, you are likely already aware of this, and you should select the time zone that indicates this special region.
    GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time, which refers to a time standard based on International Atomic Time. This time standard is also known as UTC (Universal Coordinated Time). World time zones can be expressed as positive or negative offsets from GMT.
