    In the FRAME of something

    Is it acceptable to use
    "in the frame of something"
    instead of
    "in the context of something"???

    "In the frame of the interview the reporter asked some unpleasant questions"

    Thanks in advance for your answers.

    No. "Frame" would be a Germanism. I would prefer to translate "im Rahmen" simply as "During" or "In the course of" in this particular sentence.
