The machine is slow but runs Windows XP and Office 2003. Its main task is to churn out Word documents in English and Arabic. I have responsibility for a number of machines which run under both languages and this has never been a problem before.
The initial problem was that only Arabic numbers would appear in the Arabic documents when Hindi numbers were required.
I decided to re-install XP as the person who set the machines up managed several incomplete installations. This appears to have been successfully completed. I then deleted and re-installed Office. I checked and completed all the steps outlined under the Regional Settings.
Now I either have English appearing on both sides when I type or Arabic. The number problem has not been resolved. I have tried everything I have read on the web and the machine appears properly set up for bi lingual documents. I don't know if this is relevant but I can transfer languages in Wordpad.
I am at the end of my tether - can anyone please help me?
