Dear All,

I have build multilingual website in c#.

But, its not changing the page direction when changing cultureInfo. I have two languages "en-US" and "ar-SA".

When cultureinfo changes, the text is getting change from English to Arabic, but, not changing the page direction from left to right.

What I have tried:

#region Language/Culture

		string cultureKey = Request.QueryString["l"];
		CultureInfo ci = CultureHelper.GetCulture(cultureKey);
		if (ci == null)
			cultureKey = CultureHelper.DefaultCultureKey;
			ci = CultureHelper.DefaultCulture;

		if(ci != null)
			CookieHelper.SetLanguagePreference(Context, cultureKey);


		string returnUrl = Request.QueryString["ru"];
		if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(returnUrl))
			returnUrl = PageLink.HomePage;


Can anyone please help me.

Thanks in advance.

You need to change all these places (or at least most of them, this is something that works for me)
protected override void InitializeCulture()


if (Request.Form["culture"] != null)


String selectedLanguage = Request.Form["culture"];

UICulture = selectedLanguage;

Culture = selectedLanguage;

Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentCulture =


Thread.CurrentThread.CurrentUICulture = new
