The Ubuntu RTL Team's mission is to improve the support of right-to-left languages like Arabic, Farsi and Hebrew in Ubuntu.

What is RTL

RTL stands for right to left. Since RTL is a not the original direction of text and GUI's in computing it has it's own development challenges.

There is a table with information about the RTL languages.

We try to contribute our changes upstream as much as possible. Please try to stick to that code (literally) Smile :) .

These are the things to work on, according to priority.

  1. Make a fall back from Unity to Unity 2D for RTL users in precise before release

  2. Getting RTL enabled in LibreOffice by default or by the presence of an RTL keyboard layout in precise before release

  3. Getting RTL support in Unity

  4. Report, triage and fix RTL bugs
