I have a query and I dont know whether its already done or need to be done. Ubuntu is the most popular flavor of Linux, especially desktops, Our govt (Govt. of Pakistan) has many Laptop distribution program for graduates and bright students and those laptops are powered by Ubuntu. Also there is alot of emphasis on writing and Speaking Urdu (our national Language) especially after supreme courts ruling that Urdu should replace in all major areas, including govt departments, academia etc.
I was thinking of An Operating System that is completely in Urdu. Ubuntu supports all major languages, My question is How much the foreign language covers the interface? everything that we see, the Message Boxes, the text below the Icons, Error Messages, All the process of communication of Operating System with user should be in this Language. Is all this ALREADY possible? Or we have to do something about?
If I start working on, what will be the weight of the whole project? Can someone point me in the right direction? I need proper guidance because I am interested in doing it.
