Many modern companies have employees, customers, and business partners across the globe, working in a multitude of languages. Many of those languages, including Hindi and Mandarin, are written in non-Latin scripts. Previously, when a document was created in Google Docs and included non-Latin text, it could not be exported to Microsoft Word properly—the non-Latin content would show up illegible. With today’s launch, documents written in the following non-Latin scripts will remain readable when exported from Google Docs on desktop to Microsoft Word:
The 16 scripts above serve as the writing systems for more than 25 languages, so working with your international counterparts will now be easier and more efficient.
In addition to these new scripts, we will now support several new unicode blocks, including Arrows, Bopomofo, various Hangul jamos and other CJK symbols and radicals, mathematical operators, and more.
