How do I get an Arabic-language localisation for OS X? I also want to be able to type in Arabic with my Arabic-language keyboard (which looks the same as a regular keyboard). Can someone explain to me what to do?
I think you're going to have to wait for jaguar for arabic language support. I've looked on the apple support pages for language kits, and couldn't find any for arabic in X. They do exist for OS 9 though.
I don't know how it works with jaguar, but according to the docs i read on apples' web site regarding OS 9, you can change the orientation in the preferences (when you change the language). I'd imagine the same will be possible when we finally see 10.2.
