The project is one of the activities of Motah program at KACST, where several software products in various fields are studied to explore the extent of their Arabic support and their suitability to the needs of Arab users. Thereafter, Motah team will participate in improving the selected software products to meet those needs and requirements. LibreOffice was selected to be the first localization project because of its importance as an office application where its functions are needed by all computer users.
