Fine Reader 8 Pro unable to save text in Russian font

Has anyone had a similar experience?
I have scanned a bilingual (English & Russian) text document into Fine Reader 8 Pro. Everything worked fine (scan, read, edit, etc) up to 'Save' stage. The English font gets saved without any problems to either Worf or PDF format, but no matter what I try, I am unable to force the Fine Reader to export Russian font to any text file (e.g. Word) - it all comes out in illegible  symbols. I have followed all the instructions in the User Guide, but the problem still exists. What am I doing wrong or what is it that I am missing? Please help!!

You can get an extra file Jul 16, 2006

I can't remember the details, but when I got mine about a year ago, I ordered a special file for the Russian language to go with it, simply called "Russian.exe". I don't think there is any extra charge for this. I installed it and have never had any such problem as you describe.

Here's how to get the add-on Jul 16, 2006

Just been checking up on this. To obtain this file:
Go to Abbyy website (there is a link in the Help menu).
Click the Downloads tab.
Click on Additional recognition languages for Abbyy Fine Reader 8.0.
Click on Russian, download & install the file.
It is free to owners of AFR 8.0.
Hope it helps.

Trial version Jan 15, 2009

From the description I think you are using a Trial Version of FineReader. I encountered like when my Finereader after crach of computer lost registration info- after entering it anew all went well- but took me some time to figure out the reason, as the program opened as normal, without any warnings about it running in Evaluation Mode.
