I need help, is urgent.

I am newbie for using Trados 2007 S-tagger for convert language to THAI language.

I cannot find THAI in Target language when need to set the Document language to convert the MIF file to STF?

Is Trados 2007 S-tagger support THAI language?

Your advise will be appreciated.

You select the Asian/Non-Western language group and font as graphic for Thai in the S-tagger program. The main problem of FrameMaker with Thai is FM version that supports Thai. FM7.0 and FM9.0 do but not FM8.0 unless you use a special hardlock/software for Thai font coding. Corrupted display of Thai fonts after MIF--STF--MIF conversion is partially due to settings of Thai in S-tagger for FM. Trados Knowledge has explanations on this. Please search for it. In general, I use SDLX or Trados 2009; it has less trouble with Thai.

Hello Professor Lupkitaro,

Thanks for your quick reply.

Frame maker that I use is FM7.2.

I have change the target language to Asian (Japanese) and check the the character set to "symbol". However the result come out is question marks for whole page even I have apply the THAI character style. Am I miss out something?

"Trados Knowledge has explanations on this. Please search for it."
Is it I can search from SDL support center? I will try it later.
