    Hi,

    Thank you for using UniversalSubtitles.org; sorry to hear that you've been experiencing problems.

    Did you mean this subtitle set: http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/ZuWNUXM6YTI3/ar/194519/? If I understood you correctly, you had a problem with displaying the subtitles during the playback of the video. Could you please describe in more detail what you did and what you saw on the screen? I'm not an expert in Arabic, but when I play the video from http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/ZuWNUXM6YTI3/ar/194519/ or embedded at http://maggie.mirocommunity.org/arabic_subs/, the subs look good to me, except some minor RTL language glitches, such as punctuation signs at wrong places.

    Your input will be greatly appreciated. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi
    Thanks for your replay, let me tell you something about arabic letters .most of the letters have different shape when it comes to it's place in the word.For instance the letter (ي) which equals (z) in english alphapet , so this letter looks like this ( ــــــــــي ) at the end of the word , like in the word (أبـــي) which means (my dad). And at the beginning of the word it looks like this (يــــــ) ,like in the word (يـــــــد) which means (hand). And at the middle of the word it looks like this (ـــــــيـــــــ) , like in the word (بــــيــــت ) which means home.
    Now, After this, The problem is that all letters in the words in the translation displayed in the video don't look like they should do in aword ,they just look separated letters not words which makes it very difficult to read and understand and follow during the video . I hope you you can understand me.
    Note: the arabic sentences listed on the page on that link looks very fine and correct but in the video display they don't .
    for example: this sentence
    0:00 0:04 أريد أن أريك طريقه التى على الأقل أجدها مفيده
    looks like this in the video display:
    أري د أن أري ك ط ري ق ه ال ت ى ع ل ى ال أ ق ل أج ده ا م ف ي ده
    and so on which all the other sentsnces . I'm sure you can see the difference .thanks for you concern and looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hi,

    Thank you very much for taking your time to describe these details - they are very helpful and surely will be taken into consideration.

    If I may, one more question (please have patience with me). You said you see different writing on the language page and on the video screen during playback. I don't seem to observe this, at least, with http://www.universalsubtitles.org/en/videos/ZuWNUXM6YTI3/ar/194519/ - what I see on the page
    (أريد أن أريك طريقه التى على الأقل أجدها مفيده etc.) is what I get during the video playback. May I please know what configuration (operating system and Web browser) do you use? Did you play the video from UniversalSubtitles page or embedded it anywhere else? Thank you very much for your input in advance.
