Some languages don't use spaces but I remember seeing a module
somewhere that did multilingual wrapping, so I'll see if that can
It's probably libtext-wrapi18n-perl.
I don't know if it deals nicely with all languages (e.g. what about
I haven't become involved with the DDTP temporary frontend, since I'm
waiting for the Pootle integration, but I'm happy to test anything
for you. Our language works well as a test case for Unicode support
etc. (which is a tactful way of saying it tends to break things ;) ).
As far as word wrap is concerned, our language is all monosyllabic
words, so it provides more opportunities for breaking the line than
languages with longer/polysyllabic words. In any case, we discourage
breaking any of the words: we have enough diacritics to take in
visually without additional hyphens and breaking the reading line.
