Something else that I should have mentioned in my post. When we PDF the
Word document the PDF comes out in very good shape. The problem we have is
that our client works directly in Word so we have to get that to display
accurately as well.

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?
