I have a problem with typing in Georgian language. Our letters are not Latin and looks like "ა,ბ,გ,დ,ე,ღ" etc. when I type in Warcraft or Quiz Builder i get question marks instead of the text i want. What is wrong?

enter image description here

EDIT Georgian letters work properly on other applications.

I suspect the keyboard is just fine. It's the displaying that's mucked up. –  Daniel R Hicks Aug 4 '13 at 12:32

If Georgian letters work correctly in other applications, it would mean that this is not a keyboard issue but a software issue. For example, Warcraft and Quiz Builder may not support Georgian.

Maybe your encoding is set wrongly? You probably should be using Unicode; check if these applications support Unicode and how to tell them to use it.

It's possible that these programs don't support Georgian because they were written using the "ANSI" APIs rather than Unicode ones; this is particularly common for Win9x-era programs where the Unicode mode didn't even exist. –  grawity Aug 4 '13 at 14:03
