Hi, now it's confirmed and ready for distribution:

Next week we are going to focus on testing VisualEditor in conjunction with
non-Latin scripts: العربية, Ελληνικά, 한국어, हिन्दी, עברית , 日本 語, Русский,
中文 and more.


The testing will be done at the English Wikipedia (primarily in User
pages), where VisualEditor can be enabled. Any editor can contribute,
regardless of testing / technical experience and even knowledge of
languages in those scripts. For instance, copying texts from
http://ru.wikipedia.org/ or http://ja.wikipedia.org/ and playing with them
in your User page is also a good starting point.

Of course we welcome the participation of editors from projects based on
non-Latin scripts. Your help as ambassadors connecting with your
communities is especially needed! A main incentive is that good testing
coverage of VisualEditor in a specific script plus good community
involvement might lead to its inclusion in the related Wikipedia(s) for
broader testing.

If you have any questions or feedback please comment at
Talk:VisualEditor/Testing Non-Latin Characters Input and Behavior or send
me an email. Thank you!
