Drupal core comes with two modules to handle languages: Locale and Content translation. Locale works with the user interface text and gives you a nice set of tools that let you import existing translations, create or edit your own, or export your site's translations for use on other sites. Content translation lets you create multiple versions of the same content in different languages and associates the translated versions together.
Another really nice feature in Drupal 6 core is support for right-to-left (RTL) languages, such as Arabic or Hebrew. If a language is set as an RTL language, Drupal will automatically flip all of the text so that it reads in the proper direction, as seen with Hebrew in Figure 8-2.
