We have used the Arabic language on the website using your plugin. The problem is that when we switch to Arabic, the theme gets damaged. Although the text is from right to left, but the theme and order of thumbnails and everything should stay like the english website. How to do that?

Hello @manalc, welcome to the WPML support Forum!

Apparently your theme is not ready for RTL. These settings are defined through CSS by the theme. E.g.:

/*Set RTL for the entire page*/
body {
    direction: rtl;
/*Set RTL only for the h1 titles*/
h1 {
    direction: rtl;

/*Set the h4 titles as LTR instead of RTL*/
h4 {
    direction: ltr;

You can check here: hidden link

So the only way to fix this is:
- Manually arrange the CSS of each element by setting it to LTR instead of RTL. If there are only few elements. I can help you do this.
- Send a message to the theme support asking to fix this.

Please let me know if it worked for you or if you need more help.

All the best,
