I am having a software which uses the Font "MS UI Gothic" for displaying the captions of all GUI controls. It is having localization support with some languages like English, Japanese etc. Now I want to localize the same for "Russian" locale. But the captions displayed are not correct while using the font "MS UI Gothic", but it is fine when using the font "Arial". Please tell that how can I correct the Russian display with "MS UI Gothic" font.

Strange. I opened a new WOrd document, selected your font, copied some text from the BBC's Russian web site into that Word document. The text did not change - but it looks really ugly, all characters have the same width except for space which is very narrow.
If that's your problem, then the solution is that you'll have to use a different font for Russian. MS UI Gothic looks ugly when displaying Russian text, and that behavior cannot be changed.

Exactly that is my problem. But I can't change the font to display Russian..
