How to copy and paste to Anki Flashcards?

I hope I can explain what I am trying to do. I basically have a language learning program, a PDF file, full of sentences with Arabic and English. Originally, when I tried copy and pasting the Arabic into my Anki Flashcard program, the order of parenthesis or some periods would not appear right. So, I ran the PDF file through OCR (Arabic) and then tried it. But the thing is, I'm still having the issue. How can I copy and paste the Arabic sentences directly into Anki without the order changing or messing up? Also, there's a little stick figure symbol which appears fine in the PDF but when I copy and paste it it turns into a number 9. Please help me. By the way, I'm not too tech savvy.

    Hi Oksana! Thank you for your reply. I use ABBYY Fine Reader 12 Pro.

    The name of the document that I am working with is Glossika. There are 3 PDF's, each with a thousand sentences in English and Arabic; plus some IPA and transliteration to help with pronunciation etc. All I'd like to do is extract the English sentences and the Arabic sentences; perhaps each in a column of an Excel spreadsheet, so that I can easily import them into Anki for flashcards. Another option would be to have them on an MS Word document with a colon in between the English to Arabic sentences so I can import them to Anki.

    Here is a picture of the PDF and how it looks like:

    Example of Glossika Page

    What I literally need would be this from each sentence; for example from sentence #526 posted above:

    I can't open the door. I don't have the key.:.لا أستطع فتح الباب. لا أملك المفتاح

    Next Sentence Pair Here

    Next Sentence Pair Here

    Next Sentence Pair Here...etc.

    For all three books...either into MS Word or Column 1 in English and Column 2 in Arabic on Microsoft Excel.

     

    Thank you so much for your reply.
