I wanted to ask for adding a feature to the CS5 English version because I have it on my computer but I can not write in Arabic on my designs ..
although I use both Arabic and English languages but I can not use Photoshop with Arabic version, it's difficult for me to understand it.
So please reconsider that
Thank you for caring.

To work with Arabic text in an English version of Photoshop, you will need an existing Arabic text field. If you are not working with documents that already have this, you can download our template to edit and create Arabic text.
