International languages setup

Help+Manual is fully Unicode-enabled and can edit and publish help files in virtually all international languages. There are just some restrictions on right-to left languages, which are only supported in HTML Help CHM files and WebHelp (for example languages like Hebrew, Arabic and Farsi).

Working in Unicode languages requires both configuration settings for the language you are using in your project and special Windows settings for the Microsoft help compilers, which are not Unicode programs.

Even if you are working in English or any other Western European language it is still important to check that the language settings of your project are correct before starting work.

For more information see International Languages and Unicode  and Language Settings in the Reference section.
