A theme is the overall functionality, and look of the site where as a template is for only a page or post of your site. You link show a landing page template, not a theme. it will only apply to page.php or single.php or some variation there of with in the theme hierarchy. A landing page template is not the website as a whole, just a post.

great ! thanks jacob

how can i be sure that specific template is an rtl languages .can you send me a link to that section .so i know how to find it

please refer to the codex also if you are buying a theme it should state a rtl language compatibility. If not you might have to code it yourself.
