I need my website to be described in two languages; Arabic - which is rtl, and, English - which is ltr.

I need the keywords in both languages, too

Is it right to duplicate the meta description and the meta keywords tag????

like this:

<meta name="keywords" content="Eng Keyword1" >
<meta name="keywords" content="عربي" >				
<meta name="description" content="My website Description" >
<meta name="description" content="وصف الموقع" >

or, I should mix them in one tag, like this:

<meta name="keywords" content="Eng Keyword1, عربي" >			
<meta name="description" content="My website Description - وصف الموقع" >

but the website description won't look neat!!!!

You can creat two pages to achive your requests.

I can not !!!
I have both languages in one page, and, I want my website to be indexed in both Arabic and English!

Use only one <meta.../> tag(keywords) and specify all the major keywords that you would want to get indexed by a crawler.

<meta name="keywords" content="english is the most commonly used language on the web, another long description of your choice,...,...," />

and always add a title attribute along with your concerned topics.

<p>A web page is made up of <em [b]title="elements in HTML"[/b]>elements</em>, each of which defined by an <acronym [b]title="HyperText Markup Language"[/b]>HTML</acronym> code, or <em [b]title="HTML &lt;TAG&gt;"[/b]>tag</em>.</p>

keeping this standards' in your page will help you gain enough points on providing high quality sematics structure over your documents.

Hope it helps...
