Greetings.



That term \"back story\" may require some sort of functional / work-around equivalent.



I\'ll check my EN AR dictionary of multimedia & AV technology and post this evening (I\'m away and using a laptop right now).



\"Localization company\" is usually rendered into the Arabic as:



Company for Arabization = sharikat al-ta3riib شركة التعريب



If your PC has an OS of MS Windows 2000 or XP (either of which includes Arabic support in regional settings => language), the Arabic script above should display properly.



HTH.
