Dear Forum,

A while ago, using the following information:

I tried setting a printer driver to be able to print in Russian, Polish and Chinese, as requested. Did some sort of experimenting in SE73 and SPAD, however, the best result I got did not really work as expected.

I first thought of the language families, as it follows, then tried implementing the mix of Chinese and Eastern Europe languages according to the information here: ISO/IEC 8859-2:1999, Information technology — 8-bit single-byte coded graphic character sets — Part 2: Latin alphabet No. 2, is part of the ISO/IEC 8859 series of ASCII-based standard character encodings, first edition published in 1987. It is informally referred to as "Latin-2". It is generally intended for Central[1] or "Eastern European" languages that are written in the Latin script. Note that ISO/IEC 8859-2 is very different from code page 852 (MS-DOS Latin 2, PC Latin 2) which is also referred to as "Latin-2" in Czech and Slovak regions.[2]

The results were, as it follows :

Driver: RC001V18

Screen display: all good

Printer: polish and russian, ok, chinese not ok.

PDF: none ok

Driver: HPLJ4000

Paper: none OK

PDF: chinese OK, russian+polish not OK

Any suggestions of what else I could try?

Thank you

Hi Vlad,

please have a look at SAP note 1322715 - Attachment "Printing_in_Unicode_Systems".

There you should have a look at UPE (described as of page 8 in the document).

Best regards,
