If the display text language is following right-to-left writing direction (numbers are still left-to-right in bi-directional languages), also the standard panes change their places, and content can be mirrored if needed. The general rules for layouts in bi-directional UI languages are the following:
The Status pane components are mirrored, for example, the signal and battery panes change their places.
The main pane lists and grids are mirrored: the A column icons and texts are on the right rather than on the left, and so on.
The Control pane is not mirrored: the left softkey (typically Options or a positive selection) remains on the left, and the right softkey (typically a negative command such as Back, Exit, or Cancel) remains on the right.
