Traditional Chinese

Version 3.29 of Amazon's Kindle Previewer was just released and the updated manual for that version has the following statement:

Quote:
1.6.2 Supported Export File Formats
...
Kindle Previewer does not support export to .mobi or .azk when the language of the book is Arabic, Traditional Chinese, or one of the Indian languages. These languages are available only with Enhanced Typesetting features, and .mobi/.azk files do not support Enhanced Typesetting.
This is the first mention of Traditional Chinese that I have seen in the KDP Amazon publishing literature. (Chinese is listed as a supported language for the Kindle Previewer, but I believe that refers to simplified Chinese.)

Is this something new or is it just something that I never noticed before?

Actually, I was wrong.

It is supported by the Kindle Previewer, but not listed on the KDP Supported Languages page.

My mistake was assuming that the Previewer languages were equivalent to KDP languages.

(I have made a correction to the first post.)

Amazon has pulled version 3.29 of the Kindle Previewer and gone back to version 3.28 on the download page. I guess there was a problem with the new release.

Kindle Previewer 3.29.1 is now available. Amazon has updated the documentation to remove the mention of Traditional Chinese added in version 3.29. Perhaps they are not yet ready to announce support for that language.

————————

It turns out that version 3.29.1 is the same as 3.28.1, with only the version number changed so that it causes those who have already installed 3.29 to actually revert to the older version when they update.
