==Switching Localization SCIM==
~Instructions for setting up Puppy to allow typing in non-latin character sets, such as Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Arabic, etc. This is different from a full localization because the underlying system is still in English or another Western language. It is useful to do this if for:
~~-sharing a computer with friends or family members who speak different languages from you.
~~-learning a new language(s), and don't yet feel knowledgeable enough to handle menus in the new language(s).
~~-running an internet café, or a multi-lingual workplace. You may want have several languages available to users, and still have the underlying system in the local language for support purposes.
