# How to write Persian/Arabic text in a LaTeX document which is mainly written in English?

Actually, I want to add some sentences in Arabic script inside my PhD thesis. Will it be possible just by adding some \usepackage statement in the preamble or need more than this? This is a bit tricky requirement in the sense that English script is written from left to right but the Persian/Arabic text is written other way around! I don't know how LaTeX deals with such requirements. Any idea?

You can try the ArabTeX package:
• Use \begin{RLtext}salAm\end{RLtext} to get a whole paragraph, or This is a greeting: \<salAm> in running text. – LianTze Lim Mar 12 '12 at 13:15
