Thanks for taking the time to report this!

Confirming: On https://ar.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=الصفحة_الرئيسية&action=history this can be seen in the (من سنة (وأقدم field.

and the 'N more languages' line of the Compact Language Links

Might be a separate issue; not sure.

Also not sure which codebase this falls into; bug 62725 feels related.

My quick guess that it would in core, rather than in ULS.

It looks like the JavaScript implementation of number conversion ( mw.language.convertNumber() ) indeed doesn't check for $wgTranslateNumerals, so this affects not only ULS.

Niklas, Santhosh - you are more familiar with this JS code, am I correct or am I missing something?
