Are willing to type backwards. They have something about the Arabic support on the Illustrator product page but they keep talking about the ME version.
It is time that they realize that though Arabic is not as widely spoken as Chinese or Spanish or English it comes pretty close and is listed as the 6th most widely spoken language and it is spoken worldwide
and having this capability would serve other languages as well.
The type engine has to be updated and it is a good time to present that idea to Adobe
you can do so at this linked page or on the feature request forum
Illustrator supports right-to-left languages like Arabic and Hebrew - however, you need to use the specific Middle East and North African (MENA) edition. You can buy these at:

I'm going to have to get back to you on the MENA-edition trial download location (if it is available).
I finally have some information that you can use .
Here is the link to the trial version of MENA-enabled Illustrator CS6, that you can try before you decide whether you want to purchase: www.adobe.com/mena_ar/downloads/download-illustrator.html.
