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

    @PradeepGupta why don't you use RLT css file which will handle automatically RTL of content for your website Commented Dec 27, 2017 at 9:33

    Is the problem in the Content Editor or the website itself?

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.
