- Setting the script and language tags of the current font (if possible and available) with the package fontspec.
- Switching to a font assigned by the user to a particular script or language.
- Adjusting some typographical conventions in function of the current language:
- spaces before or after punctuation
- Redefining all document strings (like "Part", "Figure", "Bibliography").
- Adapting the formatting of dates (for non-gregorian calendars with external packages bundled with polyglossia: currently the hebrew, islamic and farsi calendars are supported).

- Ensuring the proper directionality if the text are written from right to left (via the package bidi, available separately).
