RTL is inversed in the translating page
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When the interface language is RTL (e.g. Hebrew), the default directionality of elements in the translating page should reflect this correctly.

The translation editing box should be RTL by default. And vice versa, the directionality of the box with the original message and the down arrow that copies it to the editing box should match the directionality of the source language. Usually it's English, but currently in the Hebrew interface the source message is displayed right-to-left, which is confusing.

bzimport set Reference to bz27206.

As I showed you a few days ago iirc, MediaWiki namespace pages (page view & edit) will follow the language/direction depending on the /xx language code in the title, so this will be partially fixed under $wgBetterDirectionality.

Is this now pretty much fixed?

Robin: One more possible issue: The source or other stuff that is floating on the right of the message and separated by |-bar doesn't switch to left on RTL mode. Shouldn't it?

Fixed the legend (as in "| Google" etc) in r91881.

Marking as FIXED, can be re-opened if there are other issues.
