InDesign Unicode support to Indian Languages

Aug 3, 2011 6:13 AM

Now a days, most of the applications are supporting Unicode Indian Languages. But till today Adobe is not fully supporting this. The hyphen part is not there, some of the characters can not be typed directly, some conjuncts character do not form ... We tried to use the "Adobe World-ready single-line composer" in Paragraph style - Justification, using scripts. This is not documented any where in Adobe! It is high time that Adobe should support Indian language unicode in their applications. Many of the other application are only supporting Unicode. So please take up this as urgent one.

    Try IndicPlus from MetaDesign Solutions. This is an Indian Company and may be able to help you. They had developed a composer in InDesign which they used to ship for InDesign CS2 and CS3 and then abanodoned development on it when Adobe Released World Ready Composer. IndicPlus shipped for CS4 and CS5 is now based on World Ready Composer but still thay are maintaining IndicPlus for CS2 and CS3 based on their in-house developed composer.


    You can talk to them and check if they are willing to extend their previous composer and resolve some of the issues related to Indian Typography.
