I am in the process of having my project translated into Chinese. I capture the screens and put them into a powerpoint file. The translator puts the translated text on top of the English text. I can then cut and paste the text into Director, but I have my English Windows machine set to the chinese language.
The only problem I've run into is that I also have extended ascii characters -- like the degree symbol (°) or the letter ö, which does not appear correctly. I don't know how to input these except as bitmaps.
If anyone knows how to input extended ascii while running a Chinese UI, I could really use the help.
I have a project which needs to be in simplified chinese. I have the translated text which appears correctly in wordpad, notepad, and word. In director, however, it does not work after cutting and pasting. Any idea how I can get those characters to display correctly?
The current version of Director (MX 2004) does not have the capability
of handling Unicode text, so you would need to bring the text in as
bitmapped graphics, or you can put it into a Flash swf member and use it
in Director. But there is no way to use native text capabilities in
Director to display those languages.
Adobe has stated that the next version of Director, which is supposed to
be coming out in the next few months, will support Unicode text, so you
should be able to do what you want without silly hacks once it is released.
