Persian

Persian is a right to left language. It also has a different script than what we are used to. The implication of this is that the user interface does not work well because to enter Persian, you have to select the language name in English and add the word in Farsi.

At this moment you have to change keyboardmappings from one to the other. Really inconvenient. We are extremely grateful that we are getting people who contribute to our codebase. One of them is working on showing the language names in the local language.

I can imagine that because of caching purposes we may need to cache versions per language. The work on Mulitlingual MediaWiki has started afresh. It is great to see that these things are coming together at last.. :)

Thanks,
GerardM
