Instagram’s Latest Update Will Make Arabs’ Lives Easier
Instagram has just announced that they now support three new right-to-left languages; Arabic, Farsi, and Hebrew.
Before implementing this revolutionary update that will change the lives of Arabs on their platform for the best, Instagram had supported 33 languages — including everything from Tagalog to Romanian to Bahasa Melayu — but never right to left languages. The reason it took this long was the fact that they had to reformat their entire app to support an opposite text flow.
For a while now, Instagram has supported languages like Chinese, Korean, and Japanese that can be read right to left and top to bottom, but never before has it supported exclusively right-to-left languages.
There are more than 60 million Instagram users in the MENA region, according to Tech Church, and introducing the aforementioned three languages was much needed!
