Thanks for signing up as a translator!!!
I should have addressed this sooner rather than later. I will put a notice at the top of the sign-up page for translators.
There is a small handful of languages that are written and read right to left. I see you would fall in that category.
You are free to try the translations and they might look okay as long as they are using a left to right interface of docs. Translations does just the content of a page, so if you write the title and the content right to left, it will look and read that way on a page. Unfortunately, it will be framed in a left to right interface.
Right to left is on my list and is also part of a github project working to address these issues with the template. It will not happen immediately, it will may take a few months before I can devote the time needed to correct some of the Foundation framework issues if someone doesn't come up with solution before me. :) Or it maybe I will just build a right to left template and users will just have to set it as their default manually.
