When asking for support you should be very specific about what happened and/or what is happening and list any error maeesage that are in your forum error log.
A link to your site would give people a chance to try it and see if it works for them. They might see something that would give you some insight to your problem.
But from what you are saying I gather that you are missing a few things with your SMF forum. If what Polymath told you does not work it might be that you are using UTF8 for your language and do not have the correct language files.
