Support right-to-left languages in Lightning Experience

Lightning Experience

Salesforce Classic correctly lays out standard UI elements when setting a user's language to Arabic or Hebrew, by placing all menus and field labels on the right side instead of the left. While Lightning Experience correctly displays all standard UI strings in the correct language, menus and field labels remain on the left side.

    You've probably already seen that we made some major strides here in Summer '19:

    Release Notes: Get Things Right with Right-to-Left Languages (Beta)

    Help: Right-to-Left (RTL) Language Support

    This was a major cross-team, cross-cloud effort. We still have some more work to do (notably in Reports if I recall correctly) which are on various PMs' roadmaps. I'd recommend creating new, specific Ideas if you have additional feedback. We use the shorthand "RTL" internally so you may want to incorporate that into the Idea title for searchability.

    For now I'll make this "partially delivered" so the comments stay open.
