Book Supported Languages

You can upload your books with content and metadata written in the supported languages listed below.

Tips for eBooks:
  • Content uploaded in an eBook-only language cannot be converted into a paperback book.
  • eBook content uploaded in an unsupported language won’t display properly on Kindle devices and will be removed from sale.
  • Select the language in your Bookshelf that matches the language of the written content to prevent file rejection.
Tips for paperbacks:
  • Content uploaded in a paperback-only language cannot be converted into a Kindle eBook or hardcover book.
  • Right-to-left (RTL) writing languages don't support the standard color option. 
We’re continually working on ways to support more languages. You can follow our Community forums for the latest KDP news.
