Right-to-Left Language Support for Reports and Dashboards (Beta)

Reports and Dashboards now support right-to-left (RTL) languages and locales, such as Hebrew, Arabic, and Urdu. Hebrew and Arabic are supported as end-user languages, and Urdu as a platform language. To better support RTL languages, we rearranged the reports and dashboards interface so that it flows from right to left.

Where: This change applies to Lightning Experience in Group, Essentials, Professional, Enterprise, Performance, Unlimited, and Developer editions.



As a beta feature, right-to-left support is a preview and isn’t part of the “Services” under your master subscription agreement with Salesforce. Use this feature at your sole discretion, and make your purchase decisions only on the basis of generally available products and features. Salesforce doesn’t guarantee general availability of this feature within any particular time frame or at all, and we can discontinue it at any time. This feature is for evaluation purposes only, not for production use. It’s offered as is and isn’t supported, and Salesforce has no liability for any harm or damage arising out of or in connection with it. All restrictions, Salesforce reservation of rights, obligations concerning the Services, and terms for related Non-Salesforce Applications and Content apply equally to your use of this feature.

Why: Here's what adding a dashboard component in Hebrew looks like.

When working in a RTL language, these parts of the report builder are translated but are still laid out from left to right.

  • When adding columns to a report, the top-most column in the Overview pane is the left-most column of the report table.
  • The formula editing field for both summary and row-level formulas is left-to-right, but the formula editing menu flows from right to left (1).
