I'm using word 2010 and I'm trying to create a TOC for a right-to-left language. The problem is that word creates the TOC as left-to-right, meaning that the chapter names are on the left side and the page numbers on the right.

Can it be changed?

after you create the TOC in word; Select the text in the table, and right click on it. Choose Paragraph from the menu, in the general sector in the indents and spacing tab, choose direction right to left. This worked for me.

It's working, though leaving it in the same language - which is good only if you aren't trying to switch between a left-to-right language to right-to-left language in addition to changing the direction of the text. – Oz Edri Nov 6 '15 at 22:21

Try looking under the "File > Options > Language > Choose Editing Languages"
