Hi there

I have a few problems translating our software to arabic. (I have no arabic knowlege other than that it is a Right to left language.)

When I copy and paste our translation document from MS Word to for example NotePad the punctuation order is reversed. Why does this happen and how do I fix it.

e.g the colon ":" should be on the left.

Thanks

    Try using Microsoft Word or Open Office instead of Notepad and change the text direction from right to left. I hope that works for you!

    Unfortunately the character strings need to be pasted in an XML document. So I am afraid I have to use a regular text editor.

    Then you can edit this xml file with Word instead of normally opening it! You can also open the xml file with word and there must be a "source edit" somewhere...
