Arabic Support in Storyline

Hi All,

I am trying Arabic content in Storyline but it is not supporting.
The font is set as ‘Arial Unicode MS’.

I am exporting the content and importing the translated content. It displaying all junk characters.
But when I directly paste the Arabic content in slide, the Arabic content displays properly but with reverse direction.

Also as described in the help section (http://community.articulate.com/tutorials/products/enabling-right-to-left-language-support.aspx) there are text direction buttons, the buttons are missing in Storyline. I am using Update 1: 1208.1316.

Is there any solution to fix the export/import Arabic content?

thanks,
Shailesh

Hi,

I am using articulate 360 and when we change the language to the arabic and change the text position to read from "Right to left" the navigational next, prev buttons appear's on the right. I don't think this is correct as only the text displayed inside the button has to be from right to left not the button position. Having said that, my ethnic origin is not arabic so I may be wrong.

PS. I have checked this in storyline 2 and it works as expected. Only the text is displayed from right to left . 

Please see attached  both versions from Storyline 2 and Storyline 360

Please advise in case my findings are not correct as we are soon going to work on a project in which we are going to make an arabic version.

Hi Ganesh, 

I wondered the same thing when I first saw it, so you're not alone. 😉  But I also can't read any right to left languages so I know I'm not the expert and that our team talked with a number of language specialists about updates and changes to be made.
