    @hakim

    Most of labels can be be customized into arabic or any other language, you just need to double click on them

    But regarding to the support, we don't provide it into that language as my other colleague has stated above

    Another hint that I can provide you would be to copy the source code of your form and then customize it to you needs

    For further information about how to get the source code,  here I leave a guide

    Here you have a basic guide about the creation of a form

    You might also want  to check this page about sub-labels

    Should you need more assistance, let us know

    Hi there..

    you did a great work with jetform.. thanks

    but i'm having the same issue, yes i know we can customize most of the labels which is a great thing, but in arabic we are writing from right to left...!! and you didn't give us this choice here.. even the form it's showing from left to right which is wrong and it will not looks good in the website and gives a bad impression to our site visitors..

    I don't think it is to hard to add this feature...

    hope you can do something to support the arabic language..

    thanks again

    You can try injecting a Custom CSS to make the form text display from right to left. To Inject a custom CSS in your form styles, go to Setup & Embed > Preferences then click the form styles tab. 

    Add the CSS  code below

    .form-sub-label {

    direction:rtl;

    unicode-bidi:bidi-override;

    }

    .form-all {

    direction:rtl;

    }

    Inside of the form templates gallery I created one template form that you can use. 

    Inside of that form I used Custom CSS that will enable Arabic language from right to left. Custom CSS used inside of this form can also be applied to Hebrew language.

    You can find my form inside of the Form Templates gallery:
