Why is right-to-left text displayed wrong in my text fields?

Knowledge Article Number 000205580
I entered some right-to-left text (Arabic, Hebrew, etc) in a text field but the orientation is wrong, everything is with a left-to-right orientation. 
The orientation of the text is determined by the user language. If you are salesforce in a left-to-right language (i.e English), all text will be left-to-right oriented. If you change your user language to a right-to-left language (i.e Hebrew), that text will also follow this orientation.
