I am working on an English to Hebrew translation, and occasionally have to insert English letters into the Hebrew text. I am working in Word 2003, and can't figure out how to get the English letters in place. When I switch to the English keyboard and input them, they get moved to the wrong place in the sentence.

Any advice/help? I would be grateful for a solution!

The Hebrew paragraphs Jan 10, 2011

are probably formatted left-to-right and aligned right. Try to change the format to right-to-left (format-paragraph-right-to-left). After that's done you might need to realign them.
