Skype meets the Semitic Languages

TECHNOLOGY WATCH: Skype now has support for Arabic and Hebrew languages (Android Community). And there's this too:
Skype has also promised that they will be releasing more languages that have right-to-left script as well. This may include support for Syriac, Samaritan, Mandaic, as well as languages from some African nations like Mende Kikakui, N’Ko, and Adlam. These may not be major languages, but having an app that supports these languages,is pretty important.
