Right to Left Languages

If you're having trouble with a right to left language in a Lumen5 video, this is the post for you!

The first thing to note is that starting from an article or blog post is the best way to create your video. Our AI will recognize that the article is in a right to left language and flip the text orientation so that it correctly displays right to left, rather than left to right. If the orientation of your text is incorrect, it's likely because you started from a piece of media or a template, and the switch did not occur.

If the switch doesn't happen automatically, you can change the text direction yourself from the Style tab:

The other major cause of issues with text in Lumen5 videos are fonts, as some fonts don't have support for specific characters in non-English languages. To resolve this, go to the Style tab and be sure that the font selected supports the language you're creating a video in. You can check your selected font against this list to be sure, and change the font if needed.

If you're still seeing an error with the characters that aren't in the Latin alphabet, or you don't have a plan that supports changing your font, you can contact us here for more help.
