    hello,

    I am trying sitfinity for multilingual capabilities, what i did is created two master pages with its own seperate theme files 1) English 2) arabic.

    I am able to switch the layout from english to arabic which works fine, now i have added a sitemenu from the sitefinity navigation controls. The problem is when i switch from english to arabic the menu items still show from right to left.
    so what i did was opened the project file in visual studio and under sitefinity->usercontrols->navigation35
    i added the property dir=rtl now the menu stays right to left in english and arabic.
    how do i make the menu stay ltr in english and rtl in arabic?

    thanks

    Mehdi

    Hello Mehdi,

    Thank you for using our services.

    We are happy to see that you have managed to sort this one out. I was going to suggest an identical approach. To create two themes that share the same appearance/styles. One would be for English content and in this theme you would just specify in the menu skin that the direction is left to right. And the opposite for the second theme which would be applied to Arabic content pages.

    If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us.

    Best wishes,
    Rado
