Thanks for your attention,
As Behrad said, Farsi is not an international word, we ourselves say
Farsi too our language, but its ISO name is Persian. And as you got the
point, the farsi directory is almost empty and just have some buggy and
not acceptable translations.
And about the RTL direction, I forgot to ask Mohammed Adnène
Trojette to put their Arabic RTL CSS files for our directory too. Jens,
can you do this?
BTW, we'll take a look at the social_contract to see what the problem
is, and will resend it to you.
