Blog b’ivrit!

Blogger recently announced that it is now available in three more languages: Arabic, Hebrew and Persian.

This is a significant development, say the minds behind the blogging site:

“Supporting these languages is a huge milestone for us because — unlike the other 37 languages Blogger is translated into — Arabic, Persian, and Hebrew are written from right to left. As you can see from the above screenshot, we had to flip the whole interface around.

Besides localizing the Blogger interface into these three languages, we have right-to-left templates and have added new toolbar buttons for bi-directional text editing in the post editor.

The effort was worth it, however, and we’re tremendously happy to be a part of the growing Arabic-, Hebrew-, and Persian-language blogging communities.”

Nice going Blogger. Maybe someday when I brush up on my aleph bet, I can start a Hebrew version of The Calendar Girls for the L.A. Israeli community - “Ha Banot Shel Luach Shana.”
