Hi,



I just started trying to break into the translation/interpretation work field. I have a question about the Chinese word input. A friend told me that I can type in Chinse if I have office 2000. I do have office 2000, I went to tool then to language then I chose Chinese, but nothing happens. Do I need to insert the office 2000 CD to be able to download Chinese font or something?



Also, is it a normal practice that the translation agency ask you to do a full page of sample translation in order to put you in their file? I can understand to ask for a sample translation, but a full page???



Appreciate any input!

I think you have to check whether your copy of Office 2000 is the multilingual pack first. Besides that, I think you need to download some IME features from a certain file in the CD provided. If you have any problem, just key in \"Chinese\" in the \"help\" box on the upper right corner in MS Word 2000, it should help.
