I'm sorry to say that we will be removing the RTL language translations (Hebrew and Arabic) in the next version of the game.
They will however not be 100% removed - the project will remain up on crowdin, and the locale files will still be present in game, but there will be no option in the in-game language options dialog to choose them. If you want to use an RTL language, you will have to manually edit your config file to set your locale.
You can do this by opening the config folder in your Application directory, then editing config.ini.
You should add locale=he or locale=ar to the [general] section. This means you need something like this as the final result:
Code: Select all
As for the reason for this change - until this point we've had a half implementation of RTL languages, where the text is simply flipped when we download it from crowdin. This "works" for a decent proportion of things, but not nearly 100%. In order to attain the level of polish we want for the 1.0 release, we would need to spend a bunch of time implementing proper support for RTL layouts, and this just doesn't make sense for us. We decided that instead of completely gutting the translations, we could leave them in for those who enjoy them, but not to offer them in the GUI as defaults.
I want to take this opportunity however, to thank all the translators who have contributed to the he and ar locales over the years. I'm sorry that we can't have a better resolution this time.
