Ah, the editor might be a showstopper. Hadn't thought of that.
>Actually - maybe we should look to some wealthy Middle Eastern funding source to develop an html5 editor so that Toolkits can be Arabised?
You have someone in mind?

Subject: [Xerte] FW: Xerte in Arabic?
We had this come into our helpdesk following a query about Xerte working in Arabic. Right in believing that the Xerte Editor is still in Flash and Flash can't handle right to left languages?
If I'm wrong then it looks like Julian has a very local contact interested in developing an Arabic Toolkits. Given the receptivity of the Middle East to embracing elearning and mlearning that would be a great coup if it's technically possible.
Actually - maybe we should look to some wealthy Middle Eastern funding source to develop an html5 editor so that Toolkits can be Arabised?
