While Indent to Here is a by-now deprecated approach, it will not work for what you want with Latin-based languages that favor left-to-right.
Neither will the proper approach of shaping a paragraph with a paragraph style. A paragraph style has a Last Line Indent (or, negatively, an Outdent) but not a first line Outdent for the right side.
I can only get the bulleting part of the paragraph style to build a bullet on the left side.
Maybe the Middle Eastern language version of InDesign can do this? I don't know, since I have never worked with it.
Yeah, I'm pretty stumped. None of the usual tweaks I would use to do something like this will work right to left, especially if the text is going to be replaced.
I don't have access to a Middle Eastern language version of InDesign, so I don't know either. The document is going to be sent to an outside translation company and I'm sure they have that available to them. But they're not expected to format the document, just replace English text with Arabic, which is why I'm trying to find a way that works in the Latin language version of InDesign.
If you gave me (the DTP guy in a translation firm) some right-aligned text and asked for an Arabic translation, I'd give you back left-aligned text. Your efforts to try to make their job easier, or clearer, are probably just muddying the waters, or even making it harder. There is absolutely a "Text Flow RTL" control in InDesign ME, just as there's a Spine Right control, a RTL Story control, you name it. So your efforts may communicate to your translation supplier what you want the end result to look like, but if they're going to be doing the DTP work, I assure you that they will throw out your RTL mockup and then use your fully-functional LTR template, and adjust that, in order to set up their translation.
(Or throw out your work entirely and rebuild your entire document from the ground up, to make something that looks like what you want, butis actually easy to localize. Shhh. Don't tell anyone, but more than half the time, the designer's work is so useless to me that I just make a PDF, place it, and use it as a guide to make a brand-new ID document that won't choke a translation workflow.)
Oh heck, I read too fast.

If they work in InDesign, then they'll be using the ME version. Or World Tools, or some other tool that will let them use InDesign's RTL features to flip your LTR template. Or they should be fired and replaced with a competent localiztion firm.
