We are having troubles opening up PageMaker 6.5 files that have both
Chinese and English text because apparently, the version of PageMaker
installed on my machine does not recognize Chinese fonts or Chinese
text. Has anybody worked with these kinds of files in PageMaker--are
there any downloads or patches that could be installed to allow my
version of PageMaker to recognize Chinese text? One of our company's
affiliates was sent an English version of the file, which was sent to
me, but when I opened it up, the English text looked fine, but the
Chinese text came out like garbage. I need to make some changes in the
English text in the files, and then send the files to a Chinese
translator who will make the corresponding changes in the Chinese text.
The problem is that if we saved them to the English version, it would
take up time that we don't have. Does anybody have any solutions?
