When exporting pdf which is originally in Arabic or Persian language to an office document, going to settings I see whole bunch of languages listed but not Arabic. or Persian. And when attempted to change the settings from Default to one of the other two options, such as "the same as OS" or the other option which is to ask at time of starting the program, these settings jump back to default of English and if I proceed with the same settings it fails to recognize the text and resulting Word doc. is a garbled junk. All other relevant settings such as enabling reading from right to left etc. can be modified but has no effect in the outcome. My default OS language is English and have these two other languages also installed. Any idea how to fix this issue will be much appreciated.
Regardless of what language your OS is or the default language of your Acrobat is, exporting a PDF with Arabic/Persian content to MS. Word will not yield good result, this issue is recognised by Adobe and are considering fixing it in future.
