Arabic Web Design for Westerners

Based on my experience with creating Arabic CMS templates for American Express, I wrote a presentation and designed a poster. The presentation goes into some detail about things a Westerner needs to consider when designing pages written in the Arabic alphabet. The poster shows screenshots of two Arabic-alphabet sites. One page is juxtaposed with the same page in other languages, one shows a number of pages, each in Arabic and English versions.

I prefer to first go through the presentation and then show a large-scale print-out of the poster. The presentation gives enough background for the audience to pick up on how the same element has been treated similarly or differently in different languages and by different designers.
