Submitting your Hebrew and Yiddish interior and cover

  1. Go to the File tab.
  2. Choose Options, and click Language.
  3. In the "Choose Editing Languages" section, add either Hebrew or Yiddish.
  4. Click Add.
Your interior PDF file should be uploaded starting with page 1. Choose Hebrew or Yiddish from the Language menu on the Paperback Details page when setting up your paperback.

When submitting your PDF cover file as RTL, you must upload the cover PDF with the front cover placed to the left of the spine and the back cover to the right of the spine.
