Great. Let me know if you break it.

I gave up on even considering the unit of measure when I hit Chinese... 毫巴

I went with "ranges" instead, since the possible ranges of pressure are

870 - 1084 millibars
25.90 - 32.01 inches

I've been trying some language settings, and there are some problems with languages that use non-latin script and especially when they use their own numeral system.

Russian works just fine

So does Hindi (India)
Baro_Hindi.PNG
And Thai
Baro_Thai.PNG
But Hebrew doesn't

weather.com:

Arabic and Bengali (that's spoken in Bangladesh) also use their own numeral system

Bengali
Baro-bn.PNG
Arabic
Baro_AR.PNG
They both break the barometer; here's the example for Arabic

Language settings tested: ;ar-KW (Arabic) / he-IL (Hebrew) /bn-BD (Bengali) /ru-RU (Russian) / hi-IN (Hindi) / th-TH (Thai)
I tested some more but it seems to boil down to non-western numeral systems and an issue with regard to the Hebrew alfabet

Well, not much I can do about that. I have to be able to do "math" on some harmonized number. I doubt I'm going to sweat converting Bengali too much... Hebrew feels like it comes down to how I extract the number from the overall string. Everywhere else is "value label" and Hebrew is "label value".

The intent of this skin is really "imperial or metric", I think I've pushed this about as far as I can.

Sounds reasonable enough

Besides: part of the thing with Rainmeter is doing things yourselves. I like messing around with it (though i'm not much of a coder) and finding a solution. It's the reason why i kept using it for ten years.

So as an example

Hebrew
Baro_Israel.PNG
Bengali
Baro_Bangladesh.PNG
As an user i'm used to 'one-size-fits-all english-only' sort of output from especially weather sites and since i like to have my skins in my own language i've spend a lot of time translating stuff. Some of the alterations and substitute strings i've made where horrendous, but they were fun to do and (ultimately) worked.

Weather.com is doing the opposite and localizes it's output to an extreme extent. You've gone a considerable way in implementing that in your skin but I would still think that it is perhaps not the task of the coder to offer all languages and formats in a skin, but leave that to the user.

What a wonderful idea for a weather skin! I was able to easily customize it to fit in with my existing skins.
