Word – How to change some of the numbers in word to be arabic numbers within Word

arabicmicrosoft wordmicrosoft-word-2007

I have a Word document.

It has two parts: one English and one Arabic.

The problem is that all the numbers are English numbers [0123456789], but I want the Arabic part's numbers to be Arabic numbers [٠١٢٣٤٥٦٧٨٩].

How can I do that in Word 2007 or 2010?

Since I didn't receive any response I created a program that converts English numbers to Arabic and then I use it to convert the numbers in the document. I am still wondering if there is a easier way to do it?

In Word 2010:

Go to File > Options > Advanced.

Scroll down to the Show document content section - you will find the Numeral option. Set it to Context.
