Aero Wheel Truing: Shimano WH-R540

I have a Shimano WH-R540 wheelset. Truing the back wheel wasn't so bad but truing the front has been a horrible pain. A quick question.

These rims have the spoke nipples at the hub "flange" (I guess it can be called that). The spokes hook into the rim from the side, on the opposite side of the flange. For example the spoke whose nipple is on the right side of the hub, hooks into the left side of the rim.

Say that the rim is out of true and going to the right. Do I tighten the nipple on the same side since the spoke hooks into the opposite side of the rim, or do I tighten the nipple on the left?

Hard to picture but I think you got it right. Tighten the nipple that will pull it back into true
