There are two issues. For running the dictionary you need to know the language. For hebrew and arabic it's another issue, you need to know the system language so that you know directionality. Hebrew is right to left. For hebrew characters it may be easy to decide, for what about spaces and numbers? For these we need to know the system keyboard language and not guess it from the character.

Under windows I know it's possible since for example word does it. Question is whether this is possible to know under linux (I guess so since there are panel applets that show the language). Which again comes down to the question whether
there is a technical issue why to work this way or not.

So you want to change language when the keyboard layout is changed at system level, right? I never thought of these layouts as indicators of the actual language. If Qt gives us
this information, we should be able to do it.
