That the user does not have the right fonts installed is not a good
enough reason to not translate Wine. However if the Gnome Terminal finds
the right fonts and not wineconsole (which seems to be the case
incidentally), then that would be a factor.

I did not see any bug regarding this. So I did some tests, reproduced
the problem in Gnome Terminal 3.0.1, xterm 271 and current wineconsole
and created a bug:
* Bug 28193 - wineconsole does not support RTL locales
You should CC-yourself on that bug as the developpers working on it will
likely want to check with you when they make progress.
On the translation side I still think that copying untranslated strings
over is wrong and I offer to add translator comments instead for the
strings of the command line tools. However I would do just do this as an
initial pass to ease the transition and you'd then have to live with it.
And since you're the one working with the translation, if you prefer to
copy the strings over just say the word. Alexandre will revert my patch
and I will not try to get it applied again.
