#Mediawiki seeks to support your language

Icons are part of the user interface and they are not localised in the same way like system messages. A fair bit of design is needed to make them look good and to give them the look that makes sense for the audience of a given language.

I am really happy that Parul Vora, the interaction designer of the MediaWiki Usability Initiative blogged about the need for your support. This way the advanced toolbar can be all Cyrillic, Devanagari or Kannada..

We are really happy with a first contribution for Chinese .. and we are hoping for many more. My hope is that your contributions will all be integrated in MediaWiki itself so that your perfect toolbar will become available on all MediaWiki installations.
