Updated article: Languages using right-to-left scripts

The article “Script direction and languages” now has the title “What 
languages are written with right-to-left scripts? 
<https://www.w3.org/International/questions/qa-scripts>“, and provides 
insights into right-to-left (RTL) script usage around the world.

In a substantial revision, previous tables have been replaced with a 
completely new table which lists 12 scripts and over 200 languages using 
RTL scripts in the modern day. While it is only possible to give a rough 
idea of usage, the table includes information about which countries use 
those languages and figures for speakers of those languages. The data is 
gathered from the SIL Ethnologue.

The following translations now contain substantial amounts of English 
text. This is a call for people who are willing to update existing 
translations or provide new translations.
