i am writing an Arabic text and i want to insert an English word in the sentence, as follows:

وأنوى تغييرها إلى وشىء آخر Access أنا استخدم قاعدة البيانات

but when trying to accomplish this in Microsoft word 2010 when switching to English the cursor goes to the beginning of the line:

أنا أستخدم قاعدة البيانات Access

how to accomplish that please.

Perhaps it's because, in English and other languages, text is written from left to right, and that's the end of the line. – user127350 May 22 '12 at 13:25

We need to enable the RTL for writing arabic and english together.

open word document just Press Right CTRL+SHIFT which enables RTL

Start typing Arabic by changing the keyboard then again English by changing the keyboard layout.

You will have to enable the RTL throught the document.
