You can see how "Smart quotes" automatically change the English-style double quotes to double angle quotes used in Russian.


  • Smart Punctuation — Changes white space and punctuation mark elements to those appropriate for the target language, with the exception of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) languages and those that read from right-to-left (RTL), such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, and Urdu.

In this example you can see how "Smart punctuation" works with Spanish question marks.

Note: The white space group includes spaces, non-breaking spaces, and white space representations: the middot and overring. The white space group also includes cases where an exclamation point or question mark exists in isolation at the beginning of the segment, sentence, or paragraph.
