SAP Printing non-Eurpoean character set

We have a requirement to print in character sets outside of the European character set. This covers Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Taiwanese. Our existing outputs (50+) are not printable in these languages using legacy printers and existing fonts as the font that the outputs are developed in (helvetica) causes compatibility issues. We have the option to redevelop the outputs in a different font (andale), but believe that we may have to do this for each new character set and will be very time consuming. Can any one advise if you are using SAP and are printing ok in the above language character sets? If so, can you let us know what combination of Printers, drivers and fonts you have configured please.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You have to use double byte character sets. If you are using japanese then you have to use a customized device type or an SAP provided Japanese device types(those are PS device types). If you are using PCL device type try using the CodePage 8016 and try to print.You can reach me at balarka.hajra@hotmail.com for your queries.
