Thank you Katherine,
I might try it later.
So far I found a way to format Word documents. I'm aligning all Word
contents to left to make it be aligned right online. Kind of tricky... It is
besides right-to-left preferences in the MS Word.
It might be helpful decision to someone who will work with such languages.

Thank you again
