What, exactly, is the question? This is entirely doable, but the details will depend on the version and regionalization of InDesign that you are using.
Hello Peter, my version is for Mac OS InDesign CC.
The layout of the book is in Portuguese but both contain several words in Hebrew.
Ie the entire layout happens LEFT to RIGHT, but the Hebrew words have to be the RIGHT to LEFT.
In WORD file that I received from the author is correct.
The problem happens when I import to indesign written in Hebrew reverse, namely changing the order.
Look, I found this reading several tutorials
(http://disenytrucosyconsejos.blogspot.com.br/2013/11/adobe-indesign-cc-en-arabe-hebreo-y.h tml) who helped me in parts.
I did as the tutorial above, but not helped me much. When I change the text direction
moves the whole structure of paragraph ....
If you can help me thank you very much!
With InDesign CC go to the CC app and change the language to download the English-Hebrew version, then download and install the Portuguese version. This will end with normal and ME plugins installed.
A different language in a paragraph is defined with a character style for any language. Of course you have to work completely with Paragraph Styles. When the ME plugins are installed some functionality is added, one of them is the choice of text direction for document (binding), story, paragraph and text as separate settings.
OK ! Get back to you
You may not change the text direction in the story panel. For single words you need to change the Character direction, and this has to fixed in a Character style, because you want to apply the direction not to the story, not to the paragraph (where is also a direction selection) but to single words or characters.
I changed the direction of Character but did not, because what happens is the reversal of writing, ie WORD to InDesign reverses the word in Hebrew .
Well , I did the following : In the paragraph style I changed the Adobe Paragraph Composer to Adobe World -Ready Paragraph Composer,
it changed the writing of the Hebrew , but I do not know if that's correct!
