WorldBirds now available in Arabic

Submitted by on

Arabic is now available as a language option on the following WorldBirds family systems:
Middle East Birds
North Africa Birds
East Africa Birds
West Africa Birds
By having Arabic available, BirdLife International and RSPB hope that the system will be more accessible to local bird watchers in the countries where the language is used.
There are a few caveats, though:
- the system cannot at this stage cope with the right-to-left orientation of the whole system - so the text will read correctly, but the menus etc are still on the left - this is not ideal, but is a minor problem;
- as with any translation, there are going to be areas where expert users may think that different phrases or words would fit better - please feed back suggestions to Ian Fisher ( or Loriaza Davies ( or let them know if you find any problems.
