This is the official Arabic translation Topic. All concerns, improvement suggestions, language issues etc. go here.

The current status of the Arabic translation is: not yet implemented (but in progress)

Hello all, i just want to know how can i set up a new language file and get it to work in the game, how can i test my language file ?

the arabic language need a font, but i don't know if "unicode" have the arabic glyphs, and while visiting the issues list, i found something about the right-to-left writing not supported ! so what do i need to do ?

This is a little difficult right now. Since we´re currently working on a lot of other stuff, we can´t fix that issue right now at the moment. But we sure can fix it, if we take our time.

Notepad++ is supporting rtl-writing: http://npp-community.tuxfamily.org/documentation/notepad-user-manual/display/right-left-rtl . And according to Wikipedia, Unicode should support arabic glyphs, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arabic_script_in_Unicode .

So, it should be fine. I suggest that you keep working on your lua-file and we will figure something out. :)
