Dear Colleagues,

I am translating a text from English to Arabic on a Word document. The layout of the original text is 2 columns on a page. I have tried 2 different ways, but failed: 1- I tried to change the columns on the original English text so the right column becomes left and the left becomes right. 2- Translate the text into Arabic on a separate document then change the layout into 2 columns; however, the text still reads from left column to right.

I would rather change the English columns order (swap the columns) is this possible? If not possible, how can I have the Arabic columns read in the right order (from right to left).

Thank you
