this website is so useful , but so far , it only has interface with users who type in English , it could be great if there was a section that could deal with the users of these languages , since I know that it's a bit more tricky to work on latex in these languages, but here could be the best place to get the feedback from the users

    There are quite a lot messages on site concerning RTL, persian and arabic scripts as well as hebrew, CJK, greek, cyrillic, sanskrit. I don't know about mayan, but it is likely that we have one question about scripts people deal with in their daily life. You can sort by tags around here to get matching questions, try tex.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/persian

    As there is also project xepersian, there might be some mailing list or specialised forum. Problem is, i cannot speak/read persian, so i cannot really tell.

You can ask questions about any particular language, including Persian, other RTL languages, CJK etc.

What you cannot do is to ask your question in Persian. The only official language of this website is English.

The tag we use is , which can be accompanied by , or (for the three most common RTL languages).

    “What you cannot do is to ask your question in Persian.” I seem to remember a meta discussion on some other SE site coming to the consensus that it was fine to give questions/answers in other languages, so long as an English translation was included as well. Could that be a reasonable policy here? Apr 20, 2015 at 11:25
  • @PeterLeFanuLumsdaine You can see this related meta.tex discussion, which made our policy clear. You can open the topic again, I won't be against opening the topic again, but my personal opinion is unchanged, for all the reasons listed in the linked discussion.
