In non-Latin scripts such as Arabic, Bengali,
Cambodian (Khmer), the process of glyph selection, combining and reordering is
known as “shaping”.
Character shaping and bi-directional
(bidi) reordering are highly specific tasks, and are only part of a complete
text rendering solution. Your software might already have the robust layout
system needed to support non-complex scripts, as well as font management and
rendering capabilities. However, it doesn’t include intelligent shaping and
bidi abilities, and your development team is not able to re-architect the
current text rendering system. WorldType® Shaper solves your dilemma.
By utilizing a small number of APIs which can be easily integrated into your
existing layout and rendering routines, WorldType Shaper adds the necessary
shaping and bi-directional (bidi) support required by your clients.
