Arabic is a Semitic language with about 221 million speakers in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Chad, Cyprus, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Oman, Palestinian West Bank & Gaza, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Tunisia, Turkey, UAE, Uzbekistan and Yemen.It will really help prezi gain a lot of new users and other ideas of new culture.Thank you.

Hi All,

Prezi does not officially support Arabic at this time. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

However, our product teams are fully aware of the many requests and importance of this issue, so we hope to deliver this feature in the future. Keep an eye on our New Feature Log page to stay up-to-date with what's been keeping us busy.

For the time being, you can try using the following font part in the CSS editor

@font-face 

src: url('Amiri-Regular.keg'); 
font-class: body; 
fontFamily: body; 
font-style: normal; 
font-weight: normal; 


@font-face 

src: url('Amiri-Bold.keg'); 
font-class: head; 
fontFamily: head; 
font-style: normal; 
font-weight: normal; 


@font-face 

src: url('Amiri-BoldItalic.keg'); 
font-class: strong; 
fontFamily: strong; 
font-style: normal; 
font-weight: normal; 


@font-face 

src: url('Arimo-Italic.keg'); 
font-class: undefined; 
fontFamily: undefined; 
font-style: italic; 
font-weight: normal; 


@font-face 

src: url('Arimo-Bold.keg'); 
font-style: normal; 
font-weight: bold; 


@font-face 

src: url('Arimo-Regular.keg'); 
font-style: normal; 
font-weight: normal; 


@font-face 

src: url('Arimo-BoldItalic.keg'); 
font-style: italic; 
font-weight: bold; 
}

Right-to-left writing can be solved using a source code editor, eg. Notepad++.

Please note that the above is not an officially supported workaround.

Thank you for your patience.

Kind regards,
Vera
