Envato Market is English-based, and all reviewers use the English version of After Effects. When you decide to use expressions within an After Effects item, we require all expressions to be written in English and any non-English expressions must be universalized.
Envato Market attracts customers from all different parts of the world and speak different languages.When an After Effects project that uses English expressions is opened within After Effects that is set to a different native language, the expressions will break and cause errors.
As a result, customers may find themselves unable to use the item correctly. This could result in extra support issues or negative item ratings and reviews.
For this reason, we encourage all authors who are using expressions to “universalize” the expressions, before uploading your item to VideoHive. It is important to ensure your item works seamlessly for as many customers as possible.
Universalizing your expressions will allows customers to customize and work with your After Effects projects in their own native language.
To universalize your expressions, you will need to run the ExpressionUniversalizer script to convert the expressions to the universal language. Once this process is done, your project can be opened in any language version of After Effects and the expressions will work correctly.
Please note, if your item uses universal expressions, be sure to let customers know by selecting Yes on the Universal Expressions attribute when uploading your item.
