- Multiple languages in a single screen? Xshell is ready when you are
Xshell is the first of its kind that has UTF-8 based terminal. With Xshell, multiple languages can be displayed on a single screen and there is no need to switch between different language encodings. As more businesses are moving towards providing their services, databases and applications in UTF-8 format, there is an increasing demand for a terminal emulator that supports UTF-8 encoding. Xshell can help you handle the multiple language environment.
