Morning Whirlers,

I have a question that has been haunting me for a bit.

I have been lead to believe that when working with MS Word in the Dari and
Urdu languages that a document will not necessarily display correctly if you
are working on an English OS.

The situation -

We are trying to detail check translated MS Word documents (1 Dari and 1
Urdu document) for formatting issues against the original English. When we
get the translated document back from our translators the formatting looks
awful on our machines. When we sent a screenshot of the document back to
the translators they claim that the file is not displaying correctly because
we are operating an English OS.

Can anyone confirm this and/or have a solution for it?
