I am new to the Arabic language.

I am using an online translation service to translate from English to Arabic.  I am however finding the results confusing.

When I "Copy & Paste" the Arabic text into any type of document the Arabic text is flipped.  The leftmost character now becomes the rightmost character... etc.

I would assume that the online translation service is correct, but I am not sure.  How can I be absolutely sure that the text I am using is the correct way around?

Thanks for your assistance.
