Hi, everyone,

I have a document from a client in Israel that is partially written in Spanish and partially in English. Thus, I need to use a copy of the original to do my translating/editing. I just tried to insert a comment box, but it is set to work with Hebrew (so it writes from right to left rather than from left to right).

Does anyone know how to reset it so that I can write queries in English? I'm working in Word 2007 in Windows 7.

Thanks in advance for your help!
