Did you ever ran into a situation where you need to add a foreign language to the powershell or Command console? let’s say for script output purpose.
It seems that the process of adding Non-Latin characters is not widely documented.
In this example I will demonstrate how to add Hebrew writing to Powershell. This will also affect the Command (CMD) console.
1. Open regedit.exe and navigate to this location:
2. Occasionally you will see two values named 0 and 00.
Add a third String Value and name it: 000 (Zero three times).
3. In this new 000 String Value, enter ‘Courier New‘ (case sensitive without the ‘ backticks marks) in the Value Data field.
4. Now open Powershell (this work for CMD as well) and go to properties: Left click on top left Powershell icon and select properties.
5. Go to ‘Font’ tab and select the Courier New font:
Now you should see Hebrew when you switch to Hebrew writing (backwards view). This enables you to send output Hebrew writing from a script for instance, into the Powershell console.
