About Language Support

Flare supports authoring and output for left-to-right (LTR) as well as right-to-left (RTL) languages. This includes English, French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Arabic, Persian, Hebrew, multi-byte languages, and more. Flare supports bi-directional languages not only at the topic level, but all the way down to the paragraph and sentence level.

There are multiple ways to produce output in different languages. For example, you might translate content directly in a Flare project, perhaps creating a different topic for each language. Alternatively, you can send the Flare files to a translator, who can use a CAT (computer-assisted translation) tool in order to translate the text strings. MadCap Lingo can be used as a CAT tool or for project management, packaging your Flare files to be sent to a translator, who uses a third-party CAT tool for the translation.
