Zoom rotation direction of Sigma 18-250 Macro and Tamron 18-270

I'm debating between these two lenses and one of the missing pieces of information is the rotation direction of the zoom ring. Most of my zoom lenses have the wide focal length on the right, requiring clockwise turn to zoom in (which although is the opposite of Minolta, is something I got used to). Are the lenses in the title the same?

In other words, when viewed from the top, lens pointing forward, is the scale something like 18---135---250 or 250---135---18?

Thanks,
Prog.
