Hi All,

I want to create website in English and Arabic language.

What steps do I need to take to implement this? I have created portlet with Language.properties file and now I want to add Arabic property file.
Do I need to create different themes for LTR and RTL display?

I want to do like Liferay's official website has..PFA the image for reference.

Please help me.

Thanks in Advance.

Regards,
Nisarg

Hi,

Thanks for your response.. Actually I have figured out the properties file issue..

I am more concern about the Look & Feel / Theme for this type of display as in Arabic all texts should be RTL...
Any idea how to do that? Any useful link for that?

Please help me..

Thank you.

By default Liferay has the features. If you change it to Arabic Language the RTL should be,

lang.dir=rtl
lang.line.begin=right
lang.line.end=left

Check this file
