We often receive questions about writing text in languages other than English. Good news - it's possible in our Legacy Video Player.
In order to get characters other than the English alphabet to appear as text in GoAnimate you need to select the Noto Sans font. This is the only font type that supports characters outside of the English alphabet.
In order to get the text you want, simply copy the text you would like to use from an outside source (i.e. website, word document, etc), then paste it into the text box with the Noto Sans font pre-selected in GoAnimate.
We currently support 10 Noto fonts:
Noto Sans, Noto Sans Hebrew, Noto Sans Thai, Noto Sans Teluga, Noto Sans Tamil, Noto Sans Bengali, Noto Sans Devanagari, Noto Sans CJK TC, Noto Sans CJK KR
If you do not see your language listed here you can try these alternatives:
- Upload the international font (GoTeam feature only - see here)
- Take screenshots and import the images into the Video Maker
See below for step-by-step instructions:
#1 Select the text you want to use & copy it.
#2 Choose the Noto font to create a text box.
#3 Paste your desired text into the box.
#4 End Result in Legacy Player:
