We proudly announce the release of the first Arabic translation for Aurora. The translation is compitable with Aurora 0.4b This was a big step because XBOX originally does not support RTL (specially connected letters) languages, such as Arabic, Persian.. etc I developed a special tool that converts the translation to a form that could be rendered properly on Aurora. It is currently being integrated into Swizzy's great Aurora Translation Tool. The Arabic translation itself was done by 3absiso and me (mostly 3absiso ). Many thanks to him on the great work. Of course, special thanks goes to Swizzy, who provided great help and support to make this happen. We also cannot forget to thank the amazing Phoenix team who made all this possible Here is a quick walk-through HD video as a demo: (thanks to 3absiso for that too) The skin in the video is a custom skin based on the wonderful Paradise skin - which provides better support to RTL language. For now, I mainly increased the width of some buttons to fit the long Arabic label, but in the future it will do more I will talk about that in a separate topic in the Skins forum. The translation still works very well with default Aurora skin!! Also with any other skins as long as they use standard unicode fonts. Just download the attached file, decompress, then upload the xzp file it to: Aurora/Media/Locales If anyone is interested in Persian localization, please contact Swizzy to arrange that.
Great news for all Arabic speakers out there!! Finally, it's now possible to add Arabic localization to Aurora Dashboard. I have developed a small tool that converts Arabic translation into a special format that renders perfectly in Aurora. It works on any normal font by the way, but I changed the default skin font to make the Arabic letters more bold and clear. I only translated the main scene for now as a sample (check screenshots below), so if anyone was already working on an Arabic translation just please coordinate with Swizzy since he is the focal point of Aurora localization. Thanks to Swizzy for the great translation tool, and of course always thanks to Phoenix who made all of this possible Screenshot of my tool (not ready yet for publishing, but will post it soon) Screenshot of the translated main scene: (just as a sample, I didn't translate the whole thing yet) Screenshot of the translated main scene of Paradise:
