Sawtooth Software: The Survey Software of Choice

Right-to-Left Direction for Foreign Languages

I have a survey written in Arabic, which goes from right-to-left rather than left-to-right. How do I make SSI Web change the text direction?

You can do this with a little CSS (cascading style sheets) script placed in your Survey Settings > Headers and Footers > HTML Head tag section. What this code does is change the text-direction of the specified styles and align the text to the right.

<style type="text/css">
    .question_body td,
    .footer1 {
        direction: rtl;
        text-align: right;
