Hi Dear Friends!

My native and target language is Farsi/Persian and is a right to left language. When working in Trados tag editor sometimes the source words need to be inserted in the target text. As the source language (English) is left to right, when doing so and previewing the target, the word order is not correct and does not read well. How can I get rid of that?

Many thanks in advance!

The above is the shortcut for the RTL button on the Tags toolbar in TagEditor - the button with the small blue arrow pointing left.

Insert it before any non-RTL text (in Hebrew, one also needs it before a number if there's a hyphen preceding it).

Good luck, Doron
