How to get correct words order for right-to-left languages in MS Word document?


I process a document in a right-to-left language. While exporting to MS Word I've received incorrect words order. Why?


The issue is connected with MS Word settings for right-to-left languages.

In order to get the correct words order for right-to-left languages, such as Hebrew, Arabic etc, please add these languages into "Office Language Preferences" of the MS Word. This setting is available in the following way: "Start" → "Office" → "Office Tools" → "Office Language Preferences". We recommend to log out and log in again to Windows to ensure that the modifications are applied.

Note: If you have added one of these "non-core" languages into the list, some hidden MS Word settings become visible.
