So, unfortunately, Roblox currently does not support Arabic text. The letters themselves carry over just fine, but the right-to-left character order, and the different forms of the letters (Arabic characters change form depending on the next character) is currently not available. This has been a very big roadblock for many translators, and obviously for the many Arabic players.
Here is an example of what a text box displays, for the word “مرحبا.”
It should be like this:
The text is flipped, and the letters aren’t connected. The text input button on the properties channel does show the correct way of writing it.
There are many out there that would be grateful for:
- Character Direction Implementation.
- Arabic character connection.
