Hey Alan!

Articulate Studio ’09 does not currently support right-to-left languages, such as Hebrew and Arabic. Prior to Flash Player 10, support for right-to-left languages was not included in the Flash Player.

If you would like to see support for right-to-left languages in future releases of Articulate software, please route your request directly to our development team using our Feature Request Form.

If you are using PowerPoint 2007 / 2010 and Presenter '09, you may be able to publish right-to-left languages by first optimizing your presentations as described in this blog article. Note that this method is not officially supported by Articulate.

Hi Vicky. Welcome to E-Learning Heroes!

Yes, this is still the case for Studio '09. The good news is that Articulate Studio '13 will support right-to-left languages. You can preview the new features that'll be included in Studio '13 here. You may also still be able to use the suggestion Peter mentioned with PowerPoint 2007 or 2010 for the time being.

Storyline supports Unicode characters, including double-byte characters, as well as right-to-left languages such as Hebrew, Arabic, and Farsi. This means you can deliver content in practically any language or character set. Take a look at this article for more information.

Let us know if you have any questions.
