Hello,

i copy an english text with simplified Chinese translation from a Word document into a indesign document.

However the Chinese language / font shows just rectangle symbols. Not very experienced in indesign yet,

any one could give an advice, believe it is just something small or a missing language/font?

Txs Christian

Dear Uwe,

Thanks a lot for your input.

However I believe this is too complicated for myself.

Especially considering the prices adobe takes and in todays international business environment it should be standard,

Even in powerpoint no problem,

Best regards Christian
