Arabic Localization of OS X

I've just recently come across this report providing links to a source (Arab Business Machine Ltd) for Arabic localization files for OS X 10.4.10 and 10.5.2. If anyone has tried these out, I'd be grateful for any comments. It looks like iLife 08 in Arabic is available from ABM as well.

Babylon Translation Software Now Available for Mac

The Babylon translation software, previously only available for PC's, now has a Mac version. Unfortunately the site offers little info about what it can do and no trial download. If anyone uses this, I'd be grateful for an evaluation.

Hebrew Localization of OS X

If you are interested in having the OS X menus and dialogues displayed in Hebrew, check out this page. If anyone installs it, I'd love to have an evaluation.

10 New Keyboards for iPod Touch and iPhone

It looks like the Sept 9, 2008 firmware update 2.1 provides the following 10 new keyboards to the iPhone 3G and the iPod Touch: Czech, Estonian, Croatian, Hungarian, Icelandic, Lithuanian, Latvian, Romanian, Slovak, and Turkish. However no new dictionaries (thus none for the keyboards mentioned above) have been added. Arabic or Hebrew or Greek input is also still not available.

The full list can be found in the tech specs.
