I am working on a website in multiple languages, one of them is Arabic. Which makes things more fun ..
As you know, in arabic and other similar languages the text goes the other way, from right to left.. I am wondering what are the basics to consider when starting such a design?
What should I worry about that is specific to right to left languages ?
What would be some standard fonts to work with? (something like Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif but for arabic languages ..)
Where can I get information about users that use this as an everyday browsing experience?
If you know, examples of clean, modern looking arab websites would be great. All I can find is old and very confusing designs(I do not speak Arabic).
Any other advice, guidelines and helpfull information is welcome :) Thank you
