At this point, Scribus basically offers no support for non latin languages except CJK thanks to a patch submitted by an external contributor.

Btw, no need to add yourself to the monitoring list, the fact you are the reporter of the issue implies your are monitoring it.

Thanks for the information but this is surprising. The text editor renders renders the text correctly while rendering on the page is wrong !

The text editor use a widget directly provided by the Qt toolkit but which does not support any feature required by complex text layout such as paragraph styles, drops caps etc... To support such feature, we have to rewrite all text editing from scratch, hence the difference between canvas and story editor.
