For Internationalization, support is included for RTL (right-to-left) languages. Asian Syllabic, Abjad, Indic and other script languages will be supported by sans-serif system font.

Hierarchy and Intent
Consistency is key to creating an easily scannable interface for users. Each level in the Trimble type hierarchy is defined with a specific color and intent. Associating the typographic style to the intent in the interface provides a visual pattern that is easy for users to skim.
The variations help keep type styles to a minimum, so consistency is easier to achieve. Too many type styles make a layout unbalanced and difficult to manage.

When you need a heading to stand out, consider using a display heading—a larger, slightly more opinionated heading style. Keep in mind these headings are not responsive by default.
