The German version of Word 97 is based in Unicode (UCS-2, that is).
I don't know anything about the Arab, or other national, versions.

You have to be careful when opening, or saving, files.

- There is an option to have Word ask you for the encoding when you
  open a file.

- In contrast to File/Save, the menu item File/Save_As has a field
  to choose the encoding for the file you are going to create on
  the disk.
