Thank you Juha,
I add -dEnableUTF8RTL & -FcUTF8 and I'll not use shortstring, no 
metter.  I can not much detail, but first view is, some message and my 
application create some folder and that has a Turkish chars, now in 
message and in created folder name is okey. I mean Turkish chars is view 
normal now. Some string function can check later.
