Translation into AR and HE


I've been asked to translate a presentation into AR and HE. I prepared the project in SDL Trados Studio and did a pseudotranslation to check that the translated file would import ok into the original presentation but I was surprised to see the the content was still read the left to right instead of right to left which is the right way in Arabic, for example.

Please see attached the translation as it shows in Studio (right to left) and the outcome in Rise as pdf (left to right).

Could you please confirm that these languages are supported and how to get the correct outcome? This is quite urgent.

Hi Elisa,

I’m sorry you’re having some trouble with this.

Right now, Rise doesn’t support right-to left languages. Our team has a feature request logged for this ability and I’ll add your voice to the discussion.

You can also keep up-to-date on new features here.

Please let me know if I can help with anything else.
