    Post Arabic in Assessment / Profiles reports

    Dear all,

    I know it's not natively possible to incorporate Arabic script into Assessment / Profiles reports, but does anyone have any advice as to how to work around this limitation? The only thing I can think of is to have the Arabic team enter it into the final exported Word docs, but this is far from ideal. :-(

    Vik: how do you cope?

    I know Capita are looking into this, but have been for over 2 years with no end in sight.

    Many thanks!

    You can substitute in after the fact, but it will mean that you can't upload and need to do it manually.
    I'm not sure if it relies on the patch which allows UDF to store UNICODE characters - which works really well by the way.
    The best person to speak to would be Hervé at Dubai School of Research Science. Chuck a question over on to SIMSME as it will be useful for the rest of 'us' to hear his method then we can report back here for others at it should apply to any other alphabet.

    Hi Vik,

    Thanks. Same as what I was thinking. I'll fire it over to the SIMSME group as well. Let's see what they have... :-)

    I'm pretty sure, they enter or at least copy and paste in arabic into SIMS, then on export the report shows a load of rubbish code. Then they run a script over it to convert back to arabic.
    This way the data is stored in the marksheet / profiles. I think they used Profiles.
