Since the Greenstone version 2.72 no manual work is required for GLI Arabic interface.Any how check the following
1-Check the directory "C:Program FilesGreenstonegliclasses" for the file dictionary_ar .This file should be available.
2- Check the directory "C:Program FilesGreenstonegliclassesxml" for file languages.xml and open it with text editor and the Arabic line should be as follow
<Language name="ARABIC" code="AR" gli="true" gs="true" mds="true">SEMITIC</Language>
if it is not just edit it to be as above.
3-Open Gli -->Click on FILE-->Preferences and change to Arabic in the "interface language".The most common reason not to be able to write Arabic when your "FONT" is Veranda,Change it to any Arabic font .
4-Press and hold "Alt" and press Shift to change to Arabic keyboard if your keyboard is not Arabic by default.
