japanese in bibliography

Postby N1CKV4R8 » Tue Oct 11, 2016 3:30 pm

Hi, i have the following problem : i need to reference some japanese author in bibliography. I tried this solution (i fouond this on stack overflow)
  1. %----------------------
  2. \usepackage{polyglossia}
  3. \setdefaultlanguage{english}
  4. \usepackage{xeCJK}
  5. %\setCJKmainfont{Hiragino Mincho Pro}

  1. %----------------------
  3. \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} % Required for inputting international characters
  4. \usepackage[T1]{fontenc} % Output font encoding for international characters

and used xelatex as compiler instead of pdflatex. This way looks like working but some japanes character are missing or displayed as cirled F.

What can i do ??

Thank you!

the first code block you posted is ok. The second will not work for XeLaTeX.

Can you please prepare a small document that shows just that name you need? It is much easier for us to reprouce your issue.
The reason you see circles might be pretty simple: the font does not have those characters and switching to another font might help.
The smart way: Calm down and take a deep breath, read posts and provided links attentively, try to understand and ask if necessary.
