I am trying to get non-English page number in LibreOffice writer. Specifically, I need page numbers in Bengali (Bangla).
To begin with, I tried changing the font. I found that the auxiliary texts inserted (like Page) are set in the desired language, but the fields like
Page Number and
Page Count remain in English. See below,
Then I tried another approach. I tried to insert certain page fields. I clicked on,
Insert->Fields->Other and then selected
Page from the type list. It gives me a list like this,
I see that many entries in non-English languages are there. But Bengali is not one of them.
I guessed that if I can add my entries to this list at farthest right, I will get my desired page numbers.
But that approach also lost its way at this point.
I have already installed the Bengali language pack for LibreOffice. No luck there.
Did not find anything like this as there is in MS Word for LibreOffice. Please see the first comment.
If could give me any other suggestion, I would appreciate it.
I understand that you do not need to know how Bengali numerals look like. If you need, this image will give you the idea. The numbering follows the Arabic system, but the notations are different from English.
