Crystal Reports - Arabic text

We have been using Crystal Reports for several years now.  However we have just been asked to create our first report in Arabic.  It would be a perfect world if we could use exactly the same report file for both English and Arabic versions.

Do we need to create a completely different report format to allow the PDF to be read correctly (right to left, opening from the right).

Is there a wonderful, magic switch buried somewhere within Crystal that automatically justifies for Arabic, both in content and in the presentation of the charts?

As a slightly separate aside, would a PDF if opened under an Arabic version of windows automatically justify correctly for the region?

Many thanks

CHeck these threads from SAP/Crystal
It appears they will do some of the translations like tool tips, currency symbol, date formats, etc but as for the data you will have to translate it or provide a trasnslation formula
