Farsi (or Persian as it is called in the West) is a distinct language to Arabic. (they do look quite similar to Westerners I must admit - I cannot tell which is which).

There is a small bounty on the Arabic MultiBit translation work - it is 30% done at the moment.
Arabic has a huge number of speakers - 300 or 400 million - and includes the rainbow arc of the south Mediterranean coast so it would be useful to have it available.

I am no expert, but apparently Arabic is a family of about 15 distinct-but-similar languages. There is a 'Standard Modern Arabic' which everyone understands so that would be what you would want a translation into.

I would recommend everybody to learn English (with my mother tongue being German) - but until that happens I guess translations really are important.

why would i care if people who have nothing i want and dont speak any language i speak use bitcoin or not? if iran suddenly vanished i probably wouldnt even notice.
iran is the worlds largest producer of the spice safron, international safron prices are way higher then in iran because they cant export it easily.   if you could flip iranian safron you'd be a millionaire.

People have said that its hard to download the standard client. [In Iran] [possibly elsewhere too. ]

I made a torrent file, not sure if this helps.

This is the magnet link:

magnet:?xt=urn:btih:8AD4F7C839B65BEEB03B582CA843E7A704995FEC&dn=bitcoin+0+7+0&tr=http%3A%2F%2Ftracker.publicbt.com%2Fannounce

Is this helpful ? I am not sure.

As I understand it, gold and silver markets are well established inside the bazaars of TIRoIR. If I were an Iranian national, I'd set up a BTC exchange and immediately convert all the Rial I receive in exchange for BTC into gold and/or silver. Alternatively, since the construction sector is still active, you could convert Rial into industrial copper stores, e.g. copper pipes, etc...

Both still have high internal demand, so you could liquidate the metal holdings if needed. Export of your gold/silver might be tricky as I believe there are rules prohibiting silver/gold export via personal carry?

I just received 184.82089mɃ. Is that what's left over of my 200mɃ sent to a bounty to translate to Arab? I'm confused.

Hi Giszmo, from the amount it is your refund for the Hindi, which was only partially done.

I have written up the details at:
http://multibit.org/bounties.html

I posted the URL on the multibit thread but forgot to post it here. Sorry.

Bounties work but they are a bit time consuming to do (as you can see from that bounties page!).
Also, the most prolific translators do not want the BTC - they just want to see the software in their mother tongue. (MBH, who did most of the Arabic, donated his share back to multibit.org. Thanks!)

There are a few translators who have not yet sent me a bitcoin address for me to send their share to but that is no big deal. The BTC is not going anywhere.

Wow. Saffron really is "the spice". Wikipedia seams to be a bit outdated with prices of USD 1,000 – 10,000 per kg while Alibaba.com quotes are much lower (while exceeding the total annual Saffron production in offers from China alone?!) but still it seams to be the most expensive spice in the world.

So while there is a monetary and an import embargo in place, how about export? Somehow in one hour of googling I couldn't find any easy to read source of whether or not ships with Saffron could freely travel and unload in foreign harbors or not. Here and there I read about an EU oil embargo but even this is super poorly documented in Wikipedia. WTH?

sounds like a business idea: smuggling saffron
