As far as I know Abiword may be of use to you.


There's a list of free word processors here.
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

Looks like Open Office will do Arabic & Hebrew.
I know it will read Word docs but am not sure about PDF's.
In the beginning there was the command line.

You may also go to http://ninite.com/ check OpenOffice under the Documents. Click get installer at the bottom of the page. When installer downloads, double click it and OpenOffice will install automatically.
