Over the years there have been a number of both academic and
commercial compilers with native language support. Most notably IBM
has at various times offered native language support in PL/I
compilers. In particular Arabic support was offered in the Middle
East at least for a time back around 1980. There is an interesting
note:


Theodor D. Sterling, "Computers in Developing Nations: A Cautionary
Tale", CACM vol. 20 (issue 12) 1977, pp. 971-972


in which the strong *opposition* to Arabic language support among
programmers is discussed.
