Bing Maps in Arabic/Hebrew RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Does Bing support maps in Arabic/Hebrew? Is it possible to display city/street name in a Semitic language on the map?

    The question is posed in the context of MVC 4 application development.

    Thank you,

    Vlad.

  • At this time Arabic/Hebrew are not yet supported by the maps (only geocoding and routing) in all the map controls. However this is available in the Native Bing Maps controls for Windows Store apps. We have plans to provide support for these in the future.

  • There are arabic map labels available. Not sure about Hebrew. Other than this forum post haven't had any other requests for Hebrew maps.

  • The version of Bing Maps that is built into Windows 10 supports both Arabic and Hebrew. The web version currently only supports Arabic. Hebrew support will likely be added within the next year. The Bing Maps geocoding and routing services supports both languages.

  • Now, some more than 3 years from your answer, is there an Arabic/Hebrew support at Bing maps?
