    Hello Rakesh,

    To get the resource files you must download them from Sitefinity marketplace. To install them please follow this article.

    Please write back if you need more assistance.

    Hi Rakesh,

    You can use language selector widget in order to select different languages you have in your site. The widget will allow you to show your content in the selected language if you have translated it.

    Parameter name: time

    Hi Rakesh,

    I also installed the Arablic language pack set it as default language for Sitefinity backend, but was unable to reproduce the error. As the error message indicates the time you set is not supported because you should use dates in the Georgian calendar. Can you tell me what changes have you made or what changes has been made previously concerning dates in your project? To go back to English try removing arabic from Resources.config located in App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration or navigate to Interface Labels and Messages. Can you navigate to other pages in Sitefinity? Is the frontend giving an error too?

    Hai Stanislav Velikov ,
    I did nothing regarding the date format,and their is no error in the front end.yes I can go other pages in the navigation and no problem.
    I have one more question also.How can I change the layout form English to Arabic( means right to left alignment).Please see the attachments.Does Sitefinity provide  any inbuilt functionality for this ?

    Hello Rakesh,

    To enable right to left in your frontend content just as shown in the screenshot you provided you need to put this css rule in the theme of your template. For more information on themes and how to register them refer to the documentation. Another option to put the css in a CSS widget and use it only for some pages.
    body 
            font-family: Georgia; 
            color: black
            font-size: 12px
            background: white
            direction: rtl
    }

    To set English the default language again go to App_Data/Sitefinity/Configuration/ResourcesConfig.config and set defaultCultureKey="english-en".
