Arabic Version of Microsoft Dynamics GP


As we all know GP still not released in Arabic language by Microsoft for Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains), and here in our region we are getting allot of requests to have it in Arabic.

Therefore to work around this I outsourced translating all strings and messages in the application to a specialized company in this field and imported translated strings and messages into GP dictionaries, I used “Forms” and “Reports” dictionaries for the import so GP core dictionaries will not be affected and errors caused by this change will be avoided.

Arabic interfaces looks like the following:

Financial’s Home Page:


Checkbook Maintenance:


Sales Transaction Entry:


Issues in this version:

1. Forms direction is not “Right to Left”.

2. Fields direction is not “Right to Left”, this cause an issue that the user cannot delete a part of the description as they cannot select the correct word when double clicking it, so they will have to clear the entire field.

David posted methods for flipping forms but his last step requires some work that could not be affordable right now.

Arabic version with the above criteria’s is available for Sale with competitive prices, currently applicable for GP 10.0, GP 9.0 and GP 8.0, let me know if anyone interested!

  4. Mariano,

    I already did, but the last step requires tuning all the scrolling windows which is not an easy task, but planned for the near future.

    Great stuff. We were passed this link by MBS when we were inquiring about GP in Arabic for our myGPcloud offering. We’ve had seven or eight requests in the last couple of weeks for myGPcloud in Arabic.

    Have you looked at myGPcloud yet? Seems to be lots of potential for partners in your neck of the world.

  7. Doug,

    I saw the myGPCloud, indeed it is great!
