RTL WWI Template setup


Hi all,

I am trying to create an SDS and Label using WWI where the data is output as Right to Left (RTL). I have a standard SDS in RTL format that SAP has provided, but am getting some different behavior when I try to insert some symbols myself.

Basically I see that the template from SAP althought the symbols are starting on the right side of the page, but the whole page is left aligned. Not sure how this is possible, but seems to me that there is some setting that we can make when creating a template so that it can be RTL, Vs. Right aligned.

I looked at note 1507738 and it mentions these few points...

  • Activate the relevant languages in the MS Office language settings tool; refer to SAP note 939928.
    • Activate the languages on the WWI server and on the Front end.

I validated that this is ok. We are able to generate the SDS in Arabic with no issues, and the text is read from RTL

  • WWI report templates must also be formatted right to left for right to left languages (not right-aligned).

I am unable to figure out how to do this. I see SAP has achieved this, but am lost to how they did it. I am hoping someone here may be able to help out.

  • Be aware of the correct right to left layout, for example mirrored tables.

I am not usre what this means, I am unable to get to this point where I have the layout as right to left.

Hope this is clear!
