Arabic Language Support


Is these any Arabic characters support in dolibarr so i can get AR characters displayed in pdf invoices correctly ?


Dolibarr from version 3 has unicode support. If the included fonts are not supported then you can build you own fonts as described in tcpdf site: ( )
The only thing I don’t know, is the support from right to left.

thank you for help, i’m on 2.9.0 and i will upgrade to 3.0 and check.


OK, update to v 3.0 done.

Now i still need to do the font because ??? still appear, any tutorial or help about creating font files because i’m not PHP programmer and most of info in above link ( aren’t clear to me.

I mean:
where to put the generated files, and where must i type the mentioned commands, sorry for annoying.


Have a look at:

DO NOT delete the generated *.z files

I made a fix into 3.0 beta to have correct font into 3.0 for ar_AR.
However, pdf templates will have to be edited because they are still left to right documents.

nice,let me test drive and feedback, indeed the direction isn’t that important since words still appear in the proper order, only alignment changes; which isn’t a big deal for short addresses for example.

thanks for effort.

I just tried it with 3.0 and its working for me. Just updating my status, in case it would be helpful for someone.
