The following question is offtopic for this mailing list.
You may want to use the Linux-IL or Hackers-IL mailing lists for this
kind of questions.

I suggest that you write custom script which does the following:
1. Split the lines in the HTML file, so that tags will appear in their
own lines.
2. Apply a script which reverses only text (not tags) in the lines - and
skips lines, in which most of the text is in English).
3. Then manually edit any place in which the above scripts did not work
correctly (hopefully there'll not be too many such places).
