As an editor of a free software translated in many languages, our wish has always been that merchants from anywhere around the world could be able to sell easily thanks to PrestaShop.

This strong focus on internationalization implies more than “just” having the software translated. It also means supporting more formats and behaviours. As a first step towards a full internationalization, we’d like to make sure that PrestaShop 1.7 version is compliant with right-to-left languages.

Many of you have shown interest in this project, so this is why we want to involve you today.

PrestaShop RTL project Trello board

What is this board about

Let’s get things straight: RTL is new to the team ^^;

Right now we’re exploring the topic and this is what the board is about: figuring out what is expected, what should be changed or improved, based on our research, but also your feedback and experience.

For example: Tristan, our Product Designer, has already designed some mock-ups for the Classic Theme to start adapting it to RTL languages. You can review these mock-ups and comment on the Trello card (or directly on Invision where the mock-ups are hosted). Your feedback is appreciated!

PrestaShop is an open-source project, and we want to build its future with you :)
