Word processing component of Office 2007.
Almost everything is fine.
What does not
If you add a RTL language or install related language pack, you will not be able to type (the characters will be mess up) [even with installing riched20, usp10, msxml6, msxml3]
Change the OS locale settings to a RTL language [If you want type in Word with two language]
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-devel
sudo apt install winbind winetricks
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/Office2007 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks
Install riched20, dotnet20
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/Office2007 WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
Leave Windows Version as Windows 7 & Set libraries as 'native'
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine/Office2007 WINEARCH=win32 wine ~/Path-To-Office/setup.exe
Open Microsoft Office Language Setings and add Persian/Urdu/Hebrew/. Then go to Word options & change Numeral to Context. Also apply your desired changes in Normal Style (like RTL Direction). I recommend create two Template for LTR and RTL separately. Finally remove the added language!
What was not tested
So far, best version for RTL Languages is Office 2007 (with riched20).
