The translation and formatting of text-to-braille in idB is done by the Liblouis framework. Therefore, it is necessary that the required language is available and approved in Liblouis. As Liblouis is an Open Source project, it is possible to make fine adjustments to the braille translation tables as needed. Please contact us for development in your language if currently not available.

It has support for a large number of languages and there is a fairly good documentation for creating new braille translation rules, a.k.a. braille tables. For general information regarding Liblouis, check out the Liblouis homepage http://liblouis.org.
