Surely Karl is right in having as part of his design philosophy the desire to avoid a systemic bias in favour of the English language.

It’s more the case that BibleTime and PocketSword still have some measure of such a systemic bias.

This is a Top Level aspect of Software Engineering. I for one commend his commitment to Internationalisation.

There have been some in the past that were not localized because of limitations, e.g. Norsk ("grep -A2 -B1 -i '^nb[^a-z]' /usr/share/xiphos/languages") and Gothic ("grep -B2 -i ^got /usr/share/xiphos/languages"). The original ISO dump from which it was initialized was all Latin script.
