I have a Smartform that has multiple languages in the same sheet. The language is rendered in the LP01 print preview, but not when converted into PDF or printed.

But not when converted into PDF;

Is there a configuration to be carried out.

LP01 (the default SPAD printer available in every ABAP system) does not have a device type suitable for multi-language (or Unicode) support. You need to use a printer which uses device type SWINCF or PDFUC for being able to have true Unicode support in PDF.

Also the Specific printer should have the Unicode font installed , in this case Sinhalese ,

check the below on installing the font.
