     How can I write Arabic sentence with some words in English embed within the sentence? 

    it keeps rearranging the words of the sentence in an incorrect form.

    for example here is the correct form of the sentence

    1607767238_5fd494c64d697_

    and here how it appears on jotform

    لا يقتصر مصطلح " التكنولوجيا " في STEM على استخدام الأدوات التكنولوجية في الصف الدراسي مثل الكومبيوتر والمشاريع والكاميرات .

    Hello,

    The previous reply is answering how to use multilanguage within a form but really don't solve the problem, as I mentioned before the problem happens upon writing one sentence with bilingual and this can be solved in the word documents for example by setting the alignment (right to left text direction). as shown in the below picture

    1607781873_5fd4cdf104262_


    here is the form, you can check the last item in the survey, I didn't complete all the items yet as all my items have the same problem (Arabic sentence with an English word in between).

    Hello! Please check this form: https://form.jotform.com/203464315457960

    Following is how this form should look like:

    1607787631_5fd4e46fc29e5_Clone of Form 2

    This form has CSS code to change text direction to RTL and also to align text to the right side. If this solves your purpose, then you can implement the following CSS code into your form:

    html, body, *{
     direction: rtl !important;
     text-align: right !important;
    }

    .form-pagebreak, .form-pagebreak > div, .form-buttons-wrapper, .form-pagebreak, .form-submit-clear-wrapper, .form-header-group{
     direction: ltr !important;
     text-align: left !important;
    }

    In case this doesn't solve your purpose, let us know.

    Thank you!
