Hi there,

yesterday I had to open a word file in Hebrew, but couldn't display it properly. Is any Hebrew translator living in the UK or continental Europe who can tell me where I can get the fonts or whatever I need? (I imagine that if you are in Israel you would get the "correct" version of Office by default).

Thanks,

Andrea

No luck yet May 26, 2010

Unfortuantely, I have been driven up the walls with this issue myself.

The closest I came to solving this - I work a lot from English into Hebrew - is working with either Nisus Writer Pro or Mellel, then exporting the "correctly" formatted file to PDF. Then, send said PDF to a PC, open it up there, then copy the PDF content to Word and then save. Time-consuming, but that's all I can manage now.


Hope this helps.

Just seen your reply Oct 20, 2010

I have just discovered that Office for Mac does not support right to left texts:(:(

Is there any update on this?
NeoOffice and Mellel seem to give similar results, but they are different from what Word for Windows users are seeing (layout-wise)icon_frown.gif I am going MAD!!
