Currently working for multilingual site, where a page which is in English. Now when I am trying to translate this with Arabic then all the content into the content editor getting distorted,

Like in English we write content from left to right and in Arabic, right to left.

So do I need to do any customisation or there is any settings in sitecore?

Please help thanks

  • Can you share some screenshots, so that people can have a look at the exact problem you are facing. Also which sitecore version you are on? – Amitabh Vyas Dec 27 '17 at 2:27
  • It's confidential, but I'll share one dummy page after translation. Thanks – Pradeep Gupta Dec 27 '17 at 2:31

    Please try one of these <style type="text/css"> body { direction:rtl; }</style> or<body dir="rtl"> – arun tiwari Dec 27 '17 at 9:27

    @PradeepGupta why don't you use RLT css file which will handle automatically RTL of content for your website – Yogesh Sharma Dec 27 '17 at 9:33

    Is the problem in the Content Editor or the website itself? – TamerM Dec 27 '17 at 9:37

Regarding the front-end website, this is unrelated to Sitecore. It can be handled with HTML and CSS.

In Content Editor, Sitecore handles this so you do not need to worry about it. I've worked on Arabic sites and the RTE popup automatically changes to RTL. The preview of RTL show LTR though but that's not a problem, it is still very much readable: enter image description here You can see the popup text is RTL but preview below it is LTR. But the characters order is still RTL so again don't worry about it.
