Hi and thanks for the report!

The translation is "ltr" (even though the input fields on the following Translating WordPress page are set to RTL):

You could submit "rtl" as a translation, and when it's approved that should change the direction for all Sindhi language sites.

In Sindhi is tagged as RTL. But perhaps there are some issues with the language pack generation.
It would be great if you could join Slack (via ) and discuss this in our channel "meta-i18n", where the right people hang around that can troubleshoot this.

I have now approved the "translation" of ltr to rtl.

Thanks! With the approval of 'rtl' as the translation, I'll close this ticket.

The invalid resolution reflects the similar ticket #55790, "since it's not an issue with core but rather an incorrect translation."
