My Word Document turned half into 2222 and 3333 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was typing two essays. I turned around to get my notebook, and when I turned back, essay #1 was half in Chinese and I couldn't get it off. I closed the document. Essay #2 was also into Chinese. I pressed undo for #2, it didn't work for #1. #2 went back to normal. I saved and quit and restarted Word. Essay #1 was fine, but now half of Essay #2 is 33333 and 222222 all the way down, included the Bibliography, which went missing. I have no recovered files, even though I did save before...


    This is a paper for Oxford, and I just got into the university this year. And this is my first tutorial

  • Do you mean that the English content of Word file become to Chinese automatically without any operation? That should not happen except that anybody touch your computer or any translation module/add-ins is running background. Please go to File > Option > Add-ins > Go and disable some of suspecious add-ins to check if the weird behavior happens again.
