Yes thats tricky and comes with a little bit of trial and error testing.

  • Goto TabShop – Settings – Print and enable ESC/POS
  • Choose the right character table index for your language (this depends on your printer model, so best would be to check your printers manual and just choose the right index number)
  • Choose the identical or a similar character encoding for your Android device (which is Android device dependent, e.g. x-mac-turkish, WIN-1254 or IBM-853, …).

Thats it.
