Hebrew and other right to left languages
So I've heard all of the "right to left languages are not supported" talk. Or read them actually. I work at a global company and we're getting ready to launch a campaign in 18 different languages including Hebrew and Arabic.
I may have found a workaround to getting all of the template buttons and captions in Articulate and Quizmaker to appear in Hebrew. You may already know that you can manipulate these and other non-western languages so they appear in the course and quiz content (images!). You can manipulate the quiz questions to be right justified by using the slide view to edit everything. But you can't put Hebrew text in an image format into the area where you edit the text/button labels. When you publish, everything is backwards. Well, on a whim, I wondered if I put it in backwards at the start, would the program then invert it into the proper order? The answer is yes. I've had a linguist check my work and so far all the buttons and captions are properly labeled in Hebrew in the published version. I call it bending the software to my will! It's a lot of cutting and pasting (because I can't actually type the words in Hebrew) and left is right and right is left and home is end and end is home, but in the end I think I've got what I need changed to Hebrew. I've saved my Hebrew labels and templates so the next time we need a Hebrew version, I'm all set and I won't have to start over. Of course, if anyone has found a simpler way of doing this, I'd be thrilled to know what it is.
