In Dynamics AX 4.0 we introduced support for Unicode. This was the first major milestone in making Dynamics AX world-ready. With Unicode support we are able to correctly render text and symbols from all written languages in the world. This has enabled us to offer Dynamics AX 4.0 in China (and Japan is in the pipeline).
Rendering text and symbols correctly is not enough to be world-ready. Correctly layout of the text and symbols is just as important. So the next natural step is to implement support for Right-To-Left, enabling texts and symbols to be displayed from the right to the left (Instead of the English layout which is left to right). This will enable us to offer Arabic and Hebrew versions of Dynamics AX 5.0.
I've just received my first screenshot of a pseudo-localized Arabic version of Dynamics AX 5.0. What do you think? Isn't this awesome?
