"can search Chinese content"

Reviewer: -Henry

Review Date: 2014-07-12

Pros: Can search Chinese content from doc file.

Cons: No option to configure interface language. It shows as simplified Chinese in my computer, but I want English. I deleted the Lang subfolder, and it turns out to be English. That's how to set it to English.

Other Thoughts: Suggest to allow user to change Language in Options.
