arabic reads right to left

I believe you need an Arabic version of Office 07

Their support pages are not exactly helpful

Word 2008 does not support right-to-left ordering. Neither does Word 2004.

You'll either need to use another program, like Nisus Writer or Mellel, or use the Windows version of Word, like louishen says.

Arabic and Mac just dont go together, unfortunately.

We have endless problems. My Arabic colleague has installed Parallel and for anything Arabic we need we use Word on Windows.

Ok everyone, i tries using Arabic in Pages 08, and it worked. It doesnt go from right to left, but it actually writes in Arabic.
