How to get correct words order for right-to-left languages in MS Word document?

Description

I process document in right-to-left language. While exporting to MS Word I've received incorrect words order. Why?

Solution

The issue is connected with MS Word settings for right-to-left languages.

In order to get the correct words order for right-to-left languages, such as Hebrew, Arabic etc, please add these languages into "Office Language Preferences" of the MS Word. This setting is available by the following way: Start → Office → Office Tools → Office Language Preferences. Please note that sometimes "logging off"-"logging in" in system could be needed for applying modifications.

By the way, having added these "non-core" languages into the list, some hidden MS Word settings become visible.
