Non-Western Math

Hello all.  I apologize in advance if this is an inappropriate place to
which to send this.  My app is GTK+ not GNOME, but I wasn't sure where
else to get this information.

I maintain a simple math puzzle game (Multiplication Puzzle - - you can see all that you need from this
screenshot: from which I am
trying to iron out any i18n issues.

I'm curious about how non-Western peoples are taught math.
Specifically, are they taught long multiplication in a similar manner to
the West?  What would need to change if not?  Should I allow the
characters and digits used to be translated as well?

Or is a game like this inherently untranslatable?

Thank you for your time and help.

Michael Terry
