Layout changes in bi-directional languages

If the display text language follows a right-to-left writing direction (numbers are still left to right in bidirectional languages), the standard panes swap places, and content can be mirrored if needed. The general rules for UI layouts in bidirectional languages are:

  1. The Status pane components are mirrored, for example, the signal and battery panes change their places.

  2. The main pane lists and grids are mirrored: the A column icons and texts are on the right rather than on the left, and so on.

  3. The Control pane is not mirrored: the left softkey (typically Options or a positive selection) remains on the left, and the right softkey (typically a negative command such as Back, Exit, or Cancel) remains on the right.
