Hi Alison, No, I am only familiar with a MIF8/FM8 workflow in this translation case. Perhaps Jeremy knows?

Now we definitely can remove the word "Possible" from the topic title... I will talk to our vendors and see if they can use this workaround. In the meantime, I hope that the men and women at Adobe understands how serious this bug is and will provide a patch as soon as possible. Thanks for the test work you did, Jeremy!

We can confirm this bug in Frame 8.0p273. In your test case, the last UTF-8 character was dropped; the others were kept. We investigated a bit further and may have a workaround for you. We noticed the string content was fairly long, at 214 bytes (counting the five UTF-8 instances as two bytes each). While that doesn't exceed the 254-byte limit, we thought it would be worth examining. When we cut the string into three ParaLines as Frame would, where the first two were about 100 bytes each, all characters remained. We understand that a TM tool is generating the MIF. Is there a way to limit the maximum line length it allows in a single <String> to, say, 128? The length doesn't really matter to Frame, since the line breaks are reset anyway upon loading the MIF.
