I am currently writing a book on the practical use of regexes in the translation environment and would like to include a short comment concerning considerations of using regexes with RTL languages (such as Arabic or Hebrew). In particular, regexes normally scan left to right and numbers are written left to right, how is this conflict handled for RTL languages? I would appreciate feedback from any translator who works with this problem.
