NJStar Communicator

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Long on features, and short on looks, NJStar Communicator gets everything right except its hideous interface. The unreadable fonts and poorly drawn icons recall the bad old days of Windows 3.x, and most functions are squirreled away in various menus, making them hard to find quickly.

Which is a shame, because there really are a lot of them, and they're quite useful. NJStar Communicator allows you to input Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) text in any Windows application. It also can convert between different character sets, such as Unicode and Big5, or translate documents into GIFs, which will always appear the same no matter who's viewing them. On top of all that, it includes an e-mail client and a simple SMTP server.

In the end, NJStar Communicator leaves a Jekyll and Hyde impression. It's definitely useful in situations where people send and receive messages in different CJK languages. However, the interface needs a redesign from the ground up.
