# How do I hyphenate centered text?

I am trying to achieve text, that uses hyphentation despite being centered. Apparently this is something non-standard to latex.

Help very much appreciated.

MWE:

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{Thesis}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage[english,ngerman]{babel}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[10]
\centering
\lipsum[10]
\end{document}

-

\centering does not suppress hyphenation but the penalties and glue are such that it will (almost) always be the case that there is a lower penalty for having a shorter line.

The ragged2e package has \Centering which is less flexible at the margins, so more likely to choose hyphenation,

\documentclass[12pt, oneside]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum,ragged2e}
\usepackage[english,ngerman]{babel}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[10]
\Centering
\lipsum[10]
\end{document}
