Hello guys, a new guest on the forum
This game is very great and there are Arabs playing it but unfortunately there is no Arabic language in it and also it is not possible to write in the chat in Arabic and this is really sad
Note that this language has become used in many popular programs and games
Why is there no Arabic language in our favorite game?
I want support from many in the forum for this idea, and the game will also get very popular in Arab countries if the Arabic language is added

Since Discord, one of the major chat programs for gaming, doesn't seem to support the Arabic language I assume it's probably something of a challenge to get it working on a multi-language platform.  (I'm far from an expert in this field however).

 

I agree that if it's something easy then it's definitely something they should focus on in order to open the game to millions more potential players.

 

Maybe they are just worried that Arabic players would be too good at the game and crush their long time player base?

General Chat has support for Arabic language.

Private Channels, probably do to as it's the same technology behind General Chat.

I can use Norwegian client, and there are almost no people living here. And they seem to be able to do both chineese and russian. 
Maybe they would have to make a seperate middle eastern server to make it work?

You already can speak English, that's the way to go.

We need a world where people understand each other, English is the universal language, not that I'm particularly happy about it being French native, but it's just the way it is.

It's an easy language to learn, easy to speak, easy to write and since Esperanto has failed miserably, there's nothing to add, in my honest opinion.

To be honest, I think that a Middle-East/Africa server wouldn't be such a bad idea in terms of latency and connection quality for those countries.

It does seem odd that Arabic has not been made available, and as OP says there must be a lot of potential players in the Middle East

Personally I would also like to see Ethiopian text made available, simply because it is so cute

I would prefer lithuanian language as default game language. Why? Couse its oldest language known. You had tousands of years to learn, so dont make excuses. Yes, you are right, sanscrit in egypt pyradimes is very similar.

Oh please, if something, default/general language should be Latin.

BTW World of tanks blitz does support Arabic language.

 

So why not add it to the main game (World of tanks)

In main team chat you can use whatever language you like.  It's only the general chat where English is the rule.

I thought WoT just used Windows fonts so I'm a bit bemused why it wouldn't.

 

'fraid it's not my field though.

In all seriousness, we should all be forced to learn and speak Klingon. Problem solved :)

Jupp. Might be a viable idea for sure. Guess it kinda depends on the market for WOT there. I have no idea about that, but I dont see why they should have any less interest playing this game than "we" do.
