In the dynamic landscape of online business, reaching a global audience is paramount. One of the key challenges businesses face is catering to diverse linguistic preferences.
Differing from Latin languages, some special languages like Arabic, Urdu, Hebrew, Persian, and a few more are written from right to left (RTL). Enter the RTL Add-On – a straightforward yet robust solution designed to seamlessly adapt digital content and user interfaces for special languages.
What is RTL?
RTL stands for “Right-to-Left.” It refers to the writing direction of certain languages where text is read from right to left, as opposed to left-to-right languages like English. Arabic, Hebrew, Urdu, and Persian are examples of languages that follow the right-to-left script.
In the context of digital design and user interfaces, a right-to-left layout is crucial for presenting content in a way that aligns with the natural reading direction of these languages. The use of an RTL add-on is common to modify content flow to suit right-to-left languages effortlessly.
How Important RTL Layout is
The RTL writing systems, including Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, Urdu, Kashmiri, Pashto, Uighur, Sorani Kurdish, and Sindhi, are widely used in contemporary times. With Arabic alone boasting around 422 million speakers, it is logical to adapt your website to this globally popular language. Therefore, RTL support is a crucial aspect that cannot be overlooked.
Let’s delve into the remarkable advantages that an RTL add-on brings to e-businesses, especially for those considering whether to integrate a right-to-left mode on their website.
Global Reach and Market Expansion
Adapting your website to right-to-left languages is a strategic move for global market expansion, opening up opportunities to connect with new audiences in regions where these unique languages are prevalent.
Enhanced User Experience
It can be frustrating when you like a product but find it challenging to read the information about it. Utilizing RTL layouts enhances the user experience for speakers of right-to-left languages, creating a more intuitive and user-friendly website.
Flexibility in Content Creation
An RTL add-on allows for flexible content creation. Whether it’s product descriptions, blog posts, or other textual elements, you have the freedom to present content in a way that resonates naturally with RTL language speakers.
Offering RTL support can give your e-business a competitive edge, positioning your brand as forward-thinking and responsive to the needs of a global clientele, potentially setting you apart from competitors.
Example of RTL website
To provide readers with an intuitive visualization, Tigren introduces an example website that utilizes an RTL format to optimize its online presence. This successful project, developed by Tigren, is none other than Bazzarry.
Bazzarry is the first and biggest e-commerce marketplace in Yemen, operating in four major cities. It includes thousands of products and customers can easily pick them up or have them delivered.
In Yemen, Arabic serves as the official language. This is why Tigren has implemented an RTL (Right-to-Left) format on the website to align with the reading habits of the local citizens. Despite the ongoing conflict in the country, Tigren has successfully completed the project.
Tigren’s RTL Add-On
Languages such as Arabic, with a script flowing from right to left, present a unique challenge compared to the left-to-right flow of Latin languages. Consequently, there’s a rising demand for e-businesses to adapt their content from left-to-right to right-to-left.
