Searching for UX principles for designing an Arabic language website

Hi,
I'm sat here in Doha [Qatar] in the middle of a week of user-testing an English/Arabic travel website. One concern for our design approach is to not just "flip the text RTL" for the Arabic translation. We'd really like to actually do something meaningful for the Arabic version [yes, its early in the project and our hopes flourish].

Primarily I'm trying to find UX principles for designing an Arabic language website. From both Western and Arabic-based UX practitioners. Articles, thoughts and examples on designing Arabic language websites.

Examples of web application system documentation?

Hi all,
Where could I find good examples of web application system documentation? Are there best practices and standards that I could rely upon?
We are customizing a web ordering (which we are proprietary) for a client and just delivered its system documentation (site maps, processes flows with notifications, high level interactions between web servers and databases, system structure description, and main screens descriptions – not at the object level but with emphasis on main functionalities).

Nielsen Norman Group Usability Conference--Ever attended?

I am a print guy looking to educate himself further in digital design, user experience etc and am considering attend some days of the Nielsen Norman Group Usability Conference here in NYC (http://www.nngroup.com/events/new_york/agenda.html). Just wondered if anyone had feedback on their conferences--I am new to this, but they seem to be about the best group out there offering this sort of experience. They look great, but I am footing the bill so I thought I would ask around, thanks!

Persona Workshops

Hi all,

I was wondering if someone would have any ideas for running an
'interesting and entertaining' workshop where the client reps will
be involved in the process of creating personas.

Thanks a lot for any thoughts or ideas on that.

Cheers

Interaction Design methods library

About two years ago I came across a pretty exhaustive list of IxD methods, with advice on when to use them and examples of implementations. It covered prototyping, interviewing, ethnography research, information architecture, sketching, user testing, research analysis and synthesis, etc. - the whole shebang. It was nothing short of amazing, and yet I didn't bookmark it / lost the bookmark. Every few months I try to find it again. Really hoping I didn't dream the whole thing up. I faintly recall it being curated by a school, but that could be a red herring.

Next & previous button order

As discussed by LukeW in Web Form Design, it's best to have the primary
action of a form be the first button that the user sees. For left-to-right
languages this means having the primary action on the left and any secondary
actions on the right (see A in this illustration

Mobile Sites and Breadcrumb Navigation

Hi all -
 
Wondering if anyone has any insight or can point me to information on use of breadcrumb nav with mobile sites. Some sites use it, others appear to rely on a back link (or browser back) and a home link as a hub.
