There is a reason for doing so, when we try to connect with proxy, chances are that your internet connection sometimes becomes pretty slow, which defeats the main purpose and it becomes difficult to remain connected. Japan proxy is one of the fastest proxy. because when connected with proxy your internet connection might become slower.  Following are the steps that needs to be followed for setting up a proxy in Chrome:Chrome_Proxy_Setup_Achusoft-3

  • Also make sure to remove any other existing address that may be present, from the “Address” option.  Proceed by saving this.
3. Translating name for the Facebook page

This step involves changing the name of your Facebook page. For doing so, you need to press on the “Translated Name” tab which further displays 4 languages to choose from. You need to choose any one of the languages and type in a new name for your page, next to this language’s text box along-with the language’s symbol at the end (as displayed below).Screen-Shot-2014-06-20-at-12.18.53-PM

  • In case of Japanese language add the  ッ symbol.
  • For Chinese language the symbol is 人.
  • Similarly for Korean symbol is ㅿ.
  • And for Arabic language you need to add the symbol ـا

For instance if I’m changing my page’s translated name in korean language then i will input it as “Tech fishy “.

4. Changing the language into the desired one

You need to scroll right to the end of the Facebook page where you will find English (US). You have to change this into the language in which you have inputted the translated name above.

For e.g. If I have used Chinese language, so I will select and click on the language tab and select Chinese. Suppose you cannot find this language in the pop-up window then just move the mouse on the languages section, you will see the tittle appearing.

5. Changing the address of your page

Once you change the language, you might see that all texts that appear on the screen are in the same chosen language. So, the next step involves changing the address your Facebook page.

For changing the address, you need to select the “Edit Info” tab in the page and then click on the 5th option appearing from the top. This is just the address name changing option’s  translation in the selected language.

If you have chosen Japanese or Korean or Chinese:
  • In the first box write in the number “0or 0000″.
  • In the 2nd box, Putin the text “Amman,Jordan” .
  • Input the word “Jordan” in the 3rd box.
Suppose end up using Arabic as the language of your choice:
  • For the 1st box input the word “Jordan“.
  • Putin  “Amman, Jordan” in the Second box .
  • Input “00000” in the 3rd box.

Now you can save the address as well as the map.

Lastly, change back the Language of your page to English(US) and now you will see that your page’s name gets changed along-with the text entered by you and also with the symbol at the end.

6. Removing of the symbol that appears after the Page Name.

This is optional, suppose you do not want the symbol and want it to get removed, then follow the below steps.

  • Remove the address that was entered earlier from the Address category option and make it empty.
  • Now you need to remove map from the Address category option and select the “Turn Off“ tab.
  • Press on the “Translated Name” tab and this will display the “English” language option.
  • Next step involves removing the symbol from that text filed. Once this is done click on save.
  • Lastly,change the address that is currently appearing as “Detriot”, City/Place to “Detriot,Detriot” and save it.

This will change your Facebook’s Fanpage name, which will now appear without any symbol at the end.
