Hi, I'm moving this to the translation forum. Bound to be more replies there for this enquiry.

PS: can you please change your signature so that is complies with forum rules. Only literal ( http://www.yoursite.com ) are allowed. Thanks for that.

Perhaps this document ir timed out, because now for latin type languages fonts are not needed any more. You can make test on Your site, if PDF is correctlly produced, there is no need for additional fonts.

Well You have to ask somebody more qualified.
In fact I even do not know what kind or writing signs You are using.
Hopefully somebody who knows bit more will answer You.
But regarding user interface of TinyMCE, it is possible to translate that.
But from other point, there is idea to upgrade this editor to newer version in short time it was planned already for version 1.5.3, maybe it is better to wait.

As long as you have on your PC the right keyboard layout (and fonts), you can type in Marathi in Tiny MCE.
Same for any language not using Latin glyphs.

See http://mr.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%A4%B5% ... Devanagari

If you find some GPL unicode fonts for Marathi, we can try to make also the pdf fonts for TCPDF

This site (it is a drupal site but the feature is not drupal specific) is using a javascript to force the textarea into Devenagari.
