Hebrew text reversed in InDesign - Adobe Indesign Macintosh

When I import my client's Hebrew text from a PC Word doent into InDesign on my Mac, it appears reversed, meaning, it comes in reading left-to-right, instead of right-to-left. Without having to cut and paste all of the Hebrew text to make it appear properly, is there a way to fix this issue? I've heard of the word processing software Mellel, but I'm also told it can cause the same problem when processing Hebrew brought over from the PC to the Mac. Thank you! (My computer specs. are OSX (version 10.4.7), InDesign CS2.)...

    Mellel is a multi-lingual word processor, it supports Middle Eastern languages. If you want to do design or publishing work in Hebrew, I suggest you use InDesign Middle Eastern version, by then your words and letters will read right to left properly.

    As Zaid says. ID non-ME-version has no support for right-to-left writing even if you can fake it. I believe there is a long thread somewhere in the archives about this.

    Thank you, Zaid. This is really helpful, after a lot of searching for an answer--I'll look into this version of the product.
