Hi,
There is a problem in the Chinese voicing. It says "number, bai fen ji" (number %), but it's supposed to say "bai fen ji number) (% #). I don't know if it happens in text because I'm blind. Could this be fixed?
This task depends upon

I have no idea what you are talking about.... unless you can find someone that can read chinese and the chinese lang file, there is zero chance this can be fixed

As far as I can tell, this is the classic problem of generating strings by combining language strings in "English order". Same reason why numbers sound wrong in many languages etc.

If this is the case, then we can add a new language flag to denote the order to use when naming numbers, etc.
Take a look at the usage of LANGUAGE_FLAG_RTL flag, at http://svn.rockbox.org/viewvc.cgi/trunk/apps/language.c?view=markup
It is used in the Hebrew and Arabic languages: http://svn.rockbox.org/viewvc.cgi/trunk/apps/lang/hebrew.lang?view=markup
