    Hi Omer,
            We would really appreciate your help with this. We have two
    active developers (Tomas Frydich and Andrew Dunbar) who are very
    interested in providing 100% support for RTL languages like Hebrew but
    we don't have native speakers to do the localization and translations.

    So we'd love to get your help :-)
