Indic KDE :)|
This poster show cases all the official Indian languages ( Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Malayalam, Marathi, Nepali,Oriya, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu ) in which KDE is being translated into and has a entry in the KDE localisation website. A heartfelt thanks to all the translators in India and elsewhere who are doing an amazing job.
This poster was done by Kamaleshwar Morjal as well. Thanks dude.

Indian Lang for KDE
I like the poster.
What about Urdu? It is the official language of Jammu & Kashmir and a secondary official language in many states.
There does seem to be a localization effort, too: http://l10n.kde.org/team-infos.php?teamcode=ur Its status is marked 'active.' I could not verify the progress of their efforts, though, since the team does not appear at all in any of the statistical charts. Do you know anything about this?

Ok., this is our fault partly. We accept that part. Urdu was added recently to the KDE l10n lists, afaics. It never showed up when we reviewed the list of languages before starting with the poster idea.
I have just checked the KDE localisation mailing lists and only reference I can see is from February this year when somebody wanted to start Urdu translation.
OK, I just checked the stats as I was typing this reply, http://l10n.kde.org/stats/gui/trunk-kde4/team/
<- this page so no stats for Urdu. I do agree the team does exist but I can see no work done in Urdu at the moment. There is no module in the svn for Urdu either in trunk or in the stable branches.
So that's all I can say about this matter.You have to contact the Urdu language maintainer and the team about this. Thanks for catching it though.
Urdu is not officially added for KDE. If you wish, jump start in translation.
I'd like to, but it isn't my first language and I simply don't know enough computer parlance in it... I'll see if I can help in some other way, though.

Which writing system is shown in the lower left? It looks very pretty and geometical...

The language at the lower left is Malayalam :)

Hey, sorry I'm so late to comment, but these posters are just amazing
Malayalam is placed too low
മലയാളം എന്ത അങ്ങു ഏറ്റവും താഴെയായിപ്പോയതു്?. Why is Malayalam at the bottom? Its not even in line with Telugu.
