Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 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.

Developer's Description

NJStar Communicator is Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) communication software, as NJStar Communicator gives you both easy viewing capabilities and allows for CJK character input in normal Windows applications. It also comes with a universal code converter, which converts between all CJK language codes (including the new Unicode) as well as the GIF picture format. (It can automatically detect CJK code and convert a whole Chinese, Japanese, or Korean book into GIF picture files.) NJStar Express Mail, which is bundled with the software, allows users to send Chinese (both simplified and traditional), Japanese, and Korean email messages with no corruption by using automatic text encoding. You can even attach CJK message in GIF picture format so that the receiver can read the message instantly without the need for a multilingual support program.
