    What is the differentiating factor that say that one language is supported and others are not?

    Is there anything that prevents it from supporting Canadian French, for instance?

      Hello Mihai,
      Adobe Story is a 1.0 application launched about 2 years ago with French (France) amongst other 5 selected languages. Typical factors for supporting the languages are present user base of related Adobe products and business potential.
      Having said that, we evaluate the set of supported languages regularly. We actively listen to our customers feedback, and take into consideration feedback like yours to add new languages. We have taken your request into cognizance, and will revisit the language support next year.
      Thanks for your feedback again.
