I don't recall ever seeing any examples of right-to-left-reading charts and graphs, so I'm guessing the answer is no; however, I wanted to ask here to see if anyone has information to the contrary: for readers of right-to-left languages, are charts and graphs reversed, reading from right to left also?
There's no concrete rule. But here are some points to consider:
- Most icons and such are positioned to the right and the text to the left on RTL websites.
- Standardized graphs such as timelines and math plots stay the same. Sometimes the labels are on the right instead of the left side.
- Readers are generally comfortable reading charts in a left-to-right way.
The screen show below is from Al Jazeera's website. As seen, the icons are on the right, but the icons in the diagram are on the left.
Another Al Jazeera page uses a bar charts with labels on the right axis:
