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.

Preserving Filter Selections

Hello everyone,

I do not have the ability to do any usability testing for this, but I wanted to know if there was a best practice for this scenario:

The user lands and on media asset viewer (default view w/another view option) with options to filter the media asset viewer by category and media type. After making a few filter selections, the user then flips the media asset viewer to another view - would most users expect that their filter selections from the previous view to be preserved?

Your opinions are very welcomed.

Thanks

[Events] Enterprise Search Summit, NYC, May 11-12

If you are an experience design professional passionate about Search, you must attend the Enterprise Search Summit in NYC May 11-12. I have spoken on designing social search in the enterprise as well as designing search experiences a few times at this conference – and it really is the best conference around this problem space. Our good friend Peter Morville will be one of the keynote speakers talking about Search & Discovery Design Patterns. Again - this is pretty cool.

I'm starting work on an intranet redesign project and am after some examples of good intranet design in the last few years (most examples I have found are 2002 and older). Public & financial sector examples would be a bonus. Any suggestions welcomed

Regional influences of demographic data on design

Hi, I'm currently working as an Interaction Designer at an Email Marketing company where I'm also writing my thesis for my undergraduate (Bachelors) degree. The main goal of my research is to find if we can change certain aspects of email newsletter designs through personalization. We want to do this to create more interaction between sender and receiver of the newsletter (read: higher clickthrough rate and more conversions on the websites of our customers).

Fortune 500 User Experience ROI

I currently work for a Fortune 500 company as a User Experience Designer/Manager. I was brought in to help enhance the user experience of certain applications both web and desktop. My problem is not many people see the value of user experience. As with most public companies they only care about the bottom line. UX is looked as an expense and not an investment. I wanted to ask if anyone here had compelling data about what Fortune 500 companies are spending on UX and the return on investment they are seeing.
