FRITE- the rich text editor with Right-to-left languages


Posted by Hafed | Posted in PJCs/Javabeans | Posted on 27-03-2009

I have been working on adapting FRITE, the rich text editor to work with right to left languages such as Arabic and Hebrew and the results are here.

Hebrew – Translation of “Here is how my Hebrew text should look like in FRITE” courtesy of

Frite- rich text editor in Hebrew

The only addition to the code was the following statement:

document.putProperty(“i18n”, Boolean.TRUE);

But I still need to validate the overall workflow with users that work with Arabic or Hebrew on a daily basis.

I guess the same applies for Persian, Urdu and other right to left languages.
