My text boxes shift when exporting to PDF

I'm having an odd problem. I'm using a file that I've created and whenever I export my INDD file to PDF, some of my text boxes shift and rotate.


As you can see in the example below, my "language" box gets rotated 90º and pushed slightly left and off the page.


I've never encountered this problem before. Also, if I reorder the layers, other text boxes will end up moving. I've even tried inserting blank frames into the document with no success.


I'm not getting any errors from the program either.


Please advise!

    More details, please.


    Version of ID? OS? How are you viewing the PDF? Is the language frame on the master page?

    OK, overridding would have been the first suggestion, so we'll move on. Are you patched to 7.0.4? If not, try that first, and if there's still a problem, try exporting to .idml. See Remove minor corruption by exporting
