Arabic words SCRAMBLE on import
I know this has been discussed before, but I'm hoping to get some fresh perspective.
I am trying to bring in Arabic from a Word translation, but the order of the words is often scrambled. I have tried all I can think of to solve this, even cutting and pasting one line at a time from of Word into my Story file but that makes no difference. The problem is particularly acute when English product names are in the Arabic text string.
All Arabic (no English) text strings come in better, but I often have to toggle the RTL/LTR and play with left/right alignment to get it to look correct.
I have tried Arial, Arial Unicode, MS Sans and all consistently produce the same results.
If I cut/paste from Word to PowerPoint, the text string looks correct. No scramble of word order. If I save the PowerPoint, then import it into SL, it scrambles as before.
Do I have to tell my client that translating to Arabic is not possible? They are a global company and every project goes into 20+ languages. They bought this software for "ease of translation"!
