Unicode Conversion for Sapscripts with Asian (Japanese/Korean) Characters


We are in the Project Plan Phase of Unicode Conversion. (We are on ECC 5.0. We are planning to do the Unicode Conversion only, No Upgrade).

We have Asian sapscripts , especially forms in Japanese, and Korean. We are currently on MDMP. (6300, 8500).

In the current system, for eg, for sapscript ZINVOICE, we have a copy in English(EN) and another one in Japanese(JA). This JA form has all Japanese characters .

For eg, 'Ship-to Address' will be printed in japanese characters in this form. 日本語フォーラム

So what happen to these forms when we do unicode conversion ?

1. Do we have to still maintain multiple forms (one for english, another for Japanese, thrid one for Korean) after unicode conversion ?

2. What steps do we have to take in case of this forms during/before/after Unicode Conversion. ?

OR is it like, just do nothing...keep the forms as it is, everything will print fine, as it is doing now, in non unicode system, even after the conversion ?

Please share your knowledge. Any tips would be of great help for me.

Thank you so much
