    Simply use the straight ones and you won't have any problem thinking about the opening and closing ones!



    I was wondering if those straight quotation marks would affect the "reading flow", since similar marks are used as word symbols in such language. Indeed, I feel like the reader would have to stop reading for a second to recognize them (even though Al Jazeera uses it ...). Does it make sense? What do you think gentle and danielr?

    That's a good question, but those quotation marks are the simpler way in any language hahaha. I wouldn't say that they disrupt the reading because they are too vertical to be confused with other marks in Arabic, such as the double ones that you see here (I had to adjust the font size to show the inclination of the signs).

    Also, don't worry for them. You will not find them very easily in regular texts as you can check in the images above. They are found in religious text or in manuals for learning Arabic.

    Also, I remember the straight quotation marks was a workaround some Arabic-native linguist suggested I should use.

    Now it's to add the hour format along with the date one, more like the European style (no AM or PM).

    I'm currently dealing with a indd file translated into Hebrew. It's time to apply all the things you've mentioned above to see if everything go fine! I'll let you know the results. Thanks Gentle!

    Hate to break it to you, but InDesign is a whole special chapter!

    First off, you need to install your CC version taking special care of the language you use for your personal settings. If you will deal with RTL (either alone, or with BiDi content), you will need to choose a language like English (Arabic) or English (Hebrew). That will enable the menus and buttons you need to work with. https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-clo...-language.html

    Well, I used to work with Indesign CS6 and I had to add a plugin called Scribbe Door in order to handle RTL documents. It's a very usefull tool
