I have never gone through this procedure, but here is some information for you to explore based on your answers.
What computer operating system is your Premiere Elements 12 running on?
Do you get Polish characters if you type outside of Premiere Elements 12, for example, if you type in a Microsoft Office document?
Do you have a Polish keyboard?
Depending on your answer, you may want to explore
Clock, Language and Region
Region and Language
and the options under Region and Language.
Please update us on your progress.
Perhaps we will get a user who has first hand information to confirm the above or tell you the best way to achieve what you seek.
Welcome to the forum.
While I do not fully type in multi-national characters, I use them a lot.
On my PC's, I will compose in say WordPerfect, using one of its multi-national character sets, or if only some are needed, I will just use Windows Character Map, which allows the use of the full character set for a given font.
Not so easy as having a keyboard dedicated to a language, and direct access to the character set for a font, but for my work, gets me by.
Though only a bit of a workaround to what you seem to want, this Tips & Tricks article shows how to use characters from a font's character set, that do not normally display directly from the keyboard: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/759605?tstart=0
In the above case, the font set was Wingdings, but the characters could easily come from the multi-national characters in Arial.
Although it is one thing to type in WordPerfect, what you appear to want to do is type in Polish in Premiere Elements 12.
As I said, I have no first hand experience in this matter, but from what I have read
the above sounded like it might work. I will try it later today.
thank you for your replies, but to be honest it looks like joking. In 2014, Adobe's solution for national characters is to use ASCII codes???
Additionally in Photoshop Elements 12 I have Polish characters just using ALT + key! Do those product made the same company?
I'm totally disappointed because I bought the product, slower than competitors and without national characters. I tested Magix, Powerdirector and there were no such problems.
I thought, the company with so many years of experience, would correct such issue when as soon as someone finds it....
Yes I have a Polish Windows 7, with Polish programers keyboard and in all programs (except Premiere Elements) I have national fonts.
Well I installed the Polish keyboard driver to my W7 64-bit system and was able to type the Polish characters into the titler. I also found that entering Polish characters at http://polish.typeit.org/ could be pasted directly into PRE.
You do have to make sure you have selected the Polish keyboard layout in the system tool bar.
Plus a Google on Polish fonts produces many hits (PRE can usually work with any installed system font) including this one - http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fonts/list/language/polish

Thanks for the reply.
We are not Adobe. Just Premiere Elements users trying to help other Premiere Elements users with their Premiere Elements workflows.
As mentioned, I have had no experierce in Windows and/or Premiere Elements language setups other than English. I tried what I suggested that you explore and it did not work. Sorry about that.
If you are within 30 days of purchase of Premiere Elements 12 and have purchased the program from Adobe, you could seek your money back from Adobe.
Since you have the latest version of the program, have you tried to contact Adobe via its Adobe Chat about free information on this language issue?
If interested in this route, please click on the link above, and, when it opens, click on the statement "I still need help" to bring up the Adobe Chat. I think that the topic "downloading, installing, and setting up" is the better of the choices for Adobe Chat in this case since others are not related and/or bounce you back to the forum.
I am hoping that Adobe Chat can help you resolve your issue or, if not, give you your money back for the product if purchased from them.
Please let us know the outcome, if you have the time.
yes I know you're not Adobe, probably I didn't express myself in appropriate way.
I was just surprised seeing, your suggestions about ASCII coding national characters ;-) I though I will see the answer put checkmark on that option or somethin' simillar. That's why I post my opinion about Adobe and their product ;-)
I didn't know, there's a support chat. Thank you. I will contact them!
Strange, I have Polish keyboard installed and all applications work correctly :-(
I will contact Adobe support.
just two more questions. It's not related that issue, but I would appreciate if you could help.
I'm new in Premiere Elements. I went through videos on tv.adobe.com, but is there a book, online resources or something like that to get information how every effect/tool/option use, or should I learn all by practice.
Are there a free plugins/options/themes to Premiere Elements?

Here is a list of some learning resources, including on-line tutorials, AdobeTV, and books: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/800455?tstart=0
It is obviously not a complete list, but features some resources that many of us found useful.
As for free plug-ins, some companies do offer those from time-to-time. You might want to keep an eye on the NewBlueFX Web site, and they will often throw out a free Effect, or so. As for Themes, I am unaware of any sources, but others might have some links.
Thank you Bill!
There are several books that you might purchase, but before you do it might be a good idea to check out the very comprehensive free Premiere Elements 12 and Elements Organizer 12 Help PDF files.
Also, I have two blog posts on Premiere Elements 12 (First Look and Daily Discoveries). It is a free blog, no ads. Just my findings in exploring and experimenting with the program.
If you seek purchased books, the moderator of this forum Steve Grisetti writes books which can be found at Amazon and other book outlets (example: Muvipix.com Guide to Adobe Premiere Elements 12). And, Adobe Press offers the Adobe Premiere Elements 12 Classroom in Book. There may be others, but I do not go the purchased book route.
Essentially all of the Premiere Elements 12 Content is obtained from download within the opened project.
The following was an answer to the plugins question (asked for Premiere Elements 10 but applicable to 12 as well)
Please check out the above.
You are most welcome, and if you encounter any resources which are not included in that list, but which you find very helpful, please post links to them, and I will add them to the Tips & Tricks article.
Good luck, and happy editing,
