How to write from the right to the left side in Word?

One of our readers asked us the following question:

I am learning Hebrew and I am looking to type from right to left in Word 2010. How do I do it?

Thanks for the question. If you are looking to type in Hebrew, first install the language pack and configure the same in Control Panel. Now follow the instructions below.

Office 2003 or Older:

Go to Paragraph >> General >> Change Direction. Doing this changes the typing direction from right to left (according to your language).

Office 2007 or 2010:

1. Go to Microsoft Office Tools in your start menu, and then click Microsoft Office 2007 Language Settings.
2. In the “Available editing languages” list, select a right-to-left language.
3. Choose Add and then click OK.
4. Open Word or any other MS Office Application and you should be able to type from right to left.
