How to convert Mobi file to RTL - Hebrew

Hello,

I have kindle 3 - i want to read Hebrew books - i got to the point that i have Hebrew fonts - but its left to right - i prefer not to use PDF files.

So how can i convert a MOBI file to be right-to-left?

Thanks in advance for your help,
Ilana

You can't; the Mobi file format doesn't support RTL text. The newer KF8 format does, but the K3 can't read KF8 files.

As HarryT already pointed out, you cannot read RTL mobis on a K3.

However, you can jailbreak your Kindle and read Hebrew epubs with either FBKindle or Duokan Light (not Duokan 2012).
For more information see the Arabic support in Duokan/Duokan Lite? thread

Might be easier simply to upgrade to a newer Kindle, especially with new models probably being announced later this week.
