Copy and Pasting Nepali/Foreign Languages from Word to Indesign

Hello,

I am trying to copy and paste translated Nepali text into Indesign. I downloaded Adobe Devanagari and it is working to the extent that there are no longer boxes with Xs in them, but it is not copying and pasting correctly (e.g.): 

Original Text: बर्लिंगटन लीड कार्यक्रम 

Adobe Text: 

Capture.PNG

I cannot read/speak/write Nepali, but these do not look the same to me. I have updated the Paragraph Style so that it is in the same font as the font itself. I have tried Nimala UI which also seems to be a Nepali-friendly font (but still has the same issue). I have not done anything with Unicode because I don't really have a good understanding. Any advice/quick workarounds appreciated. Thanks!

Hi there, 

 

Thanks for reaching out. Please try importing text from word file instead of copy-pasting. Steps are shared here.

Hello,

 

After trying this - there was no change in the result. I tried many different import settings and the characters always came out the same - not how they are in the word doc. 

 

Thanks,

I think for this language you need to have the World-Ready Paragraph Composer applied, not the Adobe Paragraph Composer. Has that been set?
