Here is the thing; me and some guys have build stuff in flash.
Next we had to make whatever we had developed international (or better multinational since it needed to be distributed in a few countries). Some of these countries used exotic characters and which we could solve with codepages (and since a short while with the so called unicode support).
No problem so far...
HOWEVER now countries with exotic formats have shown interest.
By browsing around i learned that RTL languages are a bit problematic.
Since i dont feel like reinventing everything from scratch and im pretty sure you guys have lots of knowledge, my questions are:
-What do i need to know?
-What are the best practices?
-How about other more exotic formats (Bottom to Top)?
PS im working with
-dynamic texts (mostly from XML)
-Third party MovieClips (the third party should be able to make RTL movies pretty easy)
hi, i had a very similar question yesterday. thread is here.
nobody replied, but here's what i learned from searching other sites: flash does not support RTL languages (arabic - hebrew - persian - urdu) but it will display the text in a very accurate order from LEFT TO RIGHT
only way around this as far as i know is to reverse the text direction.
i've attached a sample file that someone did for me on another forum. i had no luck with it, but then i'm not very experienced in this. i hope it works for you.
