Designing print material for Hebrew, Farsi and Urdu Languages

For some languages such as Hebrew, Farsi (Persian) and Urdu, text is written from right to left - unlike European languages that are written from left to right. Designing print material in these languages for Gelato is therefore slightly different, as Gelato prints files in left to right orientation. The order of pages has to be adjusted so that it is printed in the right order.

In case of brochures for example, the page order must be reversed compared to European languages. The back cover must be page one and the front cover must be the last page. 

 

Roll-fold brochure design:
Select required size (A4, LT) Roll-fold brochure template and design the pages (reading from right to left) in below order.

Note: File should be created upside down for correct printout.

Folded Multipage Brochure design:
Content in a multipage brochure would require the pages to be arranged as shown in the layout below. The only thing required to do is to reverse the page order. On Gelato, you will preview the pages starting from last to first. Thus when printed, the brochure can be opened and read from right to left.

Document setup in Indesign
The binding direction determines the edge along which a document is bound. Documents written in a left-to-right language are left-bound. Documents written in the case of right-to-left languages are bound along the rightmost edge of the document.
