Export map: Font problems workaround?

I want to export a map to a PDF file. When I do so, some of my (Asian) font does not convert properly but is displayed as squares in the PDF. It appears correct in the mxd of ArcGIS 10.0 though.

The font is also installed on my computer and the embedding option is checked.

On this site ArcGIS Help 10.1  I found that sentence: "Note that some fonts do not support embedding and will not embed even when this option is checked"

When exporting it as a JPEG it works perfectly, however as I work with data driven pages, I have to export it as a PDF. (or is there a way on how to export DDP as JPG?). I have Adobe Acrobat X Pro as PDF reader.
