The Software Labs, a shareware source, lists a program called
INTEXT.  I will just enter the blurb:

INTEXT is the forst trule multilingual word processor available through
shareware.  Developed over many years by multinational programmers,
INTEXT allows you to word process in any one of the following
8 languages: Arabic, European languages, Farsi, Gaelic, Greek,
Hebrew, Polish, and Russian.   This unique program has powerful
features but is easy to use because it allows you to view documents
on-screen before printing.  Supports Epson FX compatible printers,
IBM Proprinter, and compatibles, and Epson LQ printers.  Requires
512K and CGA or Hercules Graphics card.

Catalog Numbers

865 - Arabic
866 - European Languages
867 - Farsi
868 - Gaelic
869 - Greek
870 - Hebrew
871 - Polish
872 - Russian.

The cost is $ 3.69 each plus shipping and handling.  Since this is
shareware there is also the cost to the author if you like the
program.  The number for ordering is 800-569-7900
8:00am - 6:00 pm PST.
