Hello there,

The Arabic translation suffers from the same problem too.
I mean the words are displayed correctly (R2L) but the sentences go the wrong way (L2R).

This is a problem of wxWidgets which is broken when it comes to R2L rendering.

There are other libs which render R2L correctly, oldest is fribidi but has some limitations,
the best is pango but it is tied to gtk and there is a new one HarfBuzz but it is still in development
and  nothing was released yet.

I don't know if R2L rendering was improved in latest wxWidgets ?
But, we still have to wait for Audacity guys to upgrade...


Cheers

Hello!
As I know, in such languagues (arabic, hedbrew) words follow in order,
that you had describe. i.e. «I Love You» is «You Love I» :)
