SAP SuccessFactors Performance Management

Reproducing the Issue

Attempt to print in Romanian using T-comma or S-comma characters:



As we are using PD4ML library for generation of PDF, the SuccessFactors system is not able to recognize characters with Comma (S-Comma or T-Comma).


Please use characters with Cedilla (S-Cedilla or T-Cedilla) as it can be recognized with Cedilla characters and renders properly in PDF file.

Use the following alt codes for the proper characters:

  • Right Alt + 0354 for T-Cedilla
  • Right Alt + 0350 for S-Cedilla

Use the associated number codes in Microsoft Word. Depending on permissions you will need to copy and paste content in word pad prior to inputting into Performance Forms.
