Nepalese Language Support
Despite offering several fonts capable of supporting Nepalese language, these ARE NOT implemented correctly and Nepalese text CANNOT be written in Adobe Premiere Pro. This is a serious issue of equity for the Nepalese community living both in Nepal and abroad.
It seems that Adobe Premiere Pro already supports Unicode, and the unicode fonts (eg: Mangal, Preeti, Devanagari New Nepali) seem to be active on Premiere Pro already... so I hope this could be a fix within scope of Adobe.
Work-arounds that have been tried:
- copy and pasting from various text editors (that correctly display Nepali text) = text is altered in Premiere Pro to be incorrect
- exporting videos to another video editor such as iMovie to add titles works (font is supported)
- using images of the text (eg: screenshot / created in image software)
All these are obviously poor solutions to the issue.
There are UNICODE solutions to this issue that can be implemented immediately.
