    Desired Outcome Goal:
    How to add print templates in non European languages, e.g. Japanese, Chinese etc.?

    The following actions are required:
    - Create new print template directories form_jpn, form_kor etc. under xxx01
    - Link to these directories from xxx50/tab/path_convert
    - Copy all files from xxx01/form_eng to new form_... Directories
    - Add the new languages to xxx50/tab/pc_tab_exp_field.lng, command "LANG". Make sure that the language codes are available in $alephe_tab/allowed_languages.
    - Adjust the templates you want to print in the specific languages, e.g. for orders acq-m-order-slip.xsl (see description below *** Adjusting templates (forms) in Asian language ***)
    - Update the print package with util i/6
    - In ACQ module create vendors with correspondent "Vendor language"

    *** Adjusting templates (forms) in Asian language ***
    1. Get the forms you have copied into a language specific directory (form_jpn etc.) to your PC using FTP
    2. Open an editor which can read and write in UTF-8 and switch the encoding language to UTF-8 . If you don't have such an editor you may download one from the WEB, e.g. NOTEPAD++. Open a template you want to adjust and modify the relevant parts.
    3. Save the file(s) in Unix format (End of Line conversion -> Unix format).
    4. Upload the file(s) back to your server
    *** End Adjusting templates (forms) in Asian language ***
