Yes, you can display both Nepali and English content simultaneously when using UTF-8 as encoding ..

I am afraid there isn't any Nepali language translation for Joomla as yet ..

You can go ahead and make one for on your own .. all you need to get is a Nepali/Hindi font installed and an editor thats capable of writing Nepali .. you can find these by a simple google search ..

Vish has an excellent tutorial on how to make a language pack here > http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic ... #msg154068

If you succeed, please let us know as we are eager for Joomla to have a translation for Nepali ..

You could try doing it online from here > http://www.unicodenepali.com/ and copy and paste from there into Joomla..

But before doing that, you need to enable your Operating System to handle Unicode ..

Wikipedia has a very nice article on how to do that here > http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia: ... ic_scripts

Yes, the GPL license of the translation file allows you to make a derivative translation out of it.

But its important that you mention in the credits that it is a derived work from the Hindi translation by Vish and release it under GPL ..

Looking forward to the translation..

Well, I have nepali language translated but there has been no QA done on it. If you are willing to do QA on the language file and then share it with IndicJoomla, it will help IndicJoomla and you too...Let me know...
