Working with multiple languages
QuarkXPress is available in several language configurations. If your language configuration supports it, you can:
- Open and edit projects that use any supported character language. Character language is an attribute that you can apply to text to indicate which hyphenation and spell checking rules should be used with that text. You can apply character language at the character level — so even if a sentence uses words in two different languages, every word can be hyphenated and spell checked correctly. For more information, see “Applying a character language.”
- Change the user interface and keyboard commands to any supported program language. Program language refers to the language used in application menus and dialog boxes. Program language affects only the user interface; it does not affect spell checking and hyphenation. For more information, see “Changing the program language.”
Note: Any language edition of QuarkXPress can open, display, and output a project that uses East Asian features. However, only an East Asian edition of QuarkXPress allows you to edit text that uses East Asian features.
