Currently SharePoint does not support writing from right to left. Examples of this come up when trying to write in Arabic. Of course, the text can be in Arabic. However, paragraph settings does not help using punctuation marks for example. These always displayed as if writing English text.

I agree we need the ability to change the direction of text for language variation pages in Arabic and Japanese. This needs to include punctuation marks including bullets and numbering in bulleted lists. This works when I paste Arabic from Microsoft Word to Bing Translator and hoping the same can be introduced to SharePoint.
