1. I have downloaded and installed the greek language pack,
2. set greek as default language (through Language Manager)

but I still can' t have greek characters...

I have read at a forum that perhaps I should "make collation of db with Phoca Changing Collation Tool."

Do you think this is the answer? And if yes, how can I do it?
Please, if you answer, keep in mind that I am coplete novice! :-)
Thank you in advance.

Hello achotz,

I'll be more then happy to help. You are using Joomla, is that correct? I did a search online and it does look like the Phoca Changing Collation Tool is a popular way to switch your databases over to a different language. I found a website that has the <a href='http://www.phoca.cz/documents/38-tools/154-how-to-change-collation-in-database' target='_blank'>Phoca Changing Collation Tool</a> as well as instructions on how to use it, once you run the script hopefully that will fix the issues! If it doesn't please let us know.

Kevin
