The browser is doing a lot of this ... I don't know too much about it but I think to do it properly every phrase needs language or direction tags around it - something like that.

Found the problem!!! it's a simple matter of page encoding.

I tried this with Mozilla Firefox:

- go to the Moodle homepage (http://moodle.org/)
- change the language to Hebrew (he)
- English will show reversed. Now change the browser's encoding from  Hebrew Visual (ISO-8859-8) to Hebrew Logical (ISO-8859-8-I)
- English will now show correctly

I noticed the page source provides the wrong locale guideline to the browser after switching to hebrew (charset=iso-8859-8). Changing that to the right one might solve the problem (no idea how to do that, It's my first day with Moodle;)

Fixed in CVS. Download the new HE lang pack from moodle.org/download/lang after the date of the langpack has changed to 9 october.

Thanks for sorting this out!

Thanks for such a quick & prompt resolution! smile




I'm going to try that as soon as I get my own installation sorted.

I did a test with the latest daily build, and it works. Thanks!

However, there's still one minor issue I encountered during installation.

I selected Hebrew as the installation language, but the page encoding remained the westerm (ISO-8859-1) one.

I changed this manually and had no subsequent encoding issues throughout the install.

However, this is a lower priority issue.

Just in case somebody would like to try this out, note there is a small issue after changing the encoding to Hebrew that causes some of the parameters (e.g. $a->user) not to work.

This is a problem on the translation files. I fixed as many of those as I could find and I am trying to contact the previous translator to merge-in the changes.

With this changes, Moodle displays Hebrew interface wonderfully.
