    Sharepoint Arabic indexed in wrong way

    mshoukry2

      I am facing the problem that all pdfs written in arabic is indexed in  a wrong way in Sharepoint 2007. Arabic is right to left language. so I expect the indexing will happen from right to left. but this is not the case. the indexing is happening from left to right.

      For example if the word is read as "مصر" it should be indexed to "م ص ر". But what happens the index will show it as "ر م ص"ز

      In English, if we have the word "ABC" the index should be "A B C", But this is not the case, it display as "C B A".

       

      I think this is a problem with the IFilter 6.

       

      Do you have any suggestions ??

       

      Thanks,
