-=====Applying language styles for DAISY Reformatting===== +=====Q&​A ​Archive=====

-<note important>​Do we want to keep this?</​note>​ +
- +
-The language can be set using styles at either the **paragraph** or **character** levels. For entire paragraphs in a foreign language, we use a Paragraph style; for inline words or phrases in another language, we use a character style. +
- +
-For example, in the image below, we can create a new Character style (let's call the style Turkish) and set the language to Turkish using the Format drop-down menu and selecting Language.  +
- +
-Following these steps will ensure that the text is spoken in the correct language, and converted into XML. +
- +
-<note important>​Do not create a language style that is not in the language options for Word. In these cases, create a [[public:​nnels:​etext:​producers-note|Producer'​s Note]] stating what the language is, and how TTS will not be able to pronounce it properly. For Indigenous Languages, please see the section below on Indigenous Languages. When in doubt, ask the Production Coordinator before proceeding.</​note>​ +

 Q: I'm working on the play "1 Hour Photo."​ It contains a few Japanese characters but in the conversion, the characters were changed to Roman alphabet letters instead. The English translation is given for the symbols so I'm wondering if I should just erase the Roman alphabet letters. Or would it be better to insert the proper ideogram back in? If so, how do I do that?  Q: I'm working on the play "1 Hour Photo."​ It contains a few Japanese characters but in the conversion, the characters were changed to Roman alphabet letters instead.
