Flare to Framemaker in Asian languages

Postby booey on Wed Jun 11, 2008 8:55 pm

Has anyone used Flare to produce Framemaker output in an Asian Language e.g. Korean. When we try we get an error message that says FrameMaker douent fully suppor the language, and the output is all question marks. I realize character encoding etc is a complex subject but I expected better reuslts than I am getting.

I do japanese output. I believe I coded everything to Unicode.

I'll check one more time ( I just got an update yesterday from our Japanese developers )

Yes, I remember now. I cannot generate the PDF's as my PC is setup as "English". If you switch your entire PC to "Korean" then you should be able to get FrameMaker to recognize the Korean (as my Japanese folks can do the PDF generation). Check the "Asian Languages Information" inside FrameMaker's "Options" dialog.

If it doesn't complain, you are good to go. My guess is that FrameMaker will complain until you completely change your system to Korean.

In the Windows Control Panel for "Languages and Regional Settings" choose the language for the "Language for non-Unicode Programs" and make sure that all your HTML files are in the MS949 character code set. (perhaps ISO-2022 will work for CJK...not sure) My Japanese files are in MS932.
