I want to bring up a critical point for us RTL
languages translators that does not impact other
languages as much -
The virtual terminal and many terminal emulators lack
bidirectional text support and hence The result of
translated console messages is a presentation of the
entry in reversed letters order.
I saw that some developers insert comments that point
which string is console oriented and which is part of
the GUI but this is not done in an orderly manner and
when I recently translated libexo (and other parts) I
had few doubts about this issue.
