Acrolinx Language Support Matrix

In general, you can use Acrolinx to check basic Terminology for all languages that Unicode supports. That means that Acrolinx only recognizes exact terms in a check. For more information, visit Unicode.org.

Language Support with Targets

A Target determines what type of guidance you want for a particular type of content. A Target consists of one or more goals. A goal is an aspect of language that you want Acrolinx to focus on. Acrolinx provides some goals for every language. The table below gives an overview of which goals are supported for which language. You decide which goals you want to include in your Target and if they count toward the Acrolinx Score. Learn more about goals in Get Started With Goals.
