MS Word under Mac cuts of sentences

I made a document written in Thai in Open Office and saved it as a .doc (Word XP). I opened it on my Mac using Mac OSX 10.6.7 Mac Word 2011. After I added the necessary fonts I was able to read it, but somehow almost all sentences cut cut off before the actual margin was reached almost every other line.  Even though there were no enters dictating the sentences so. I installed LibreOffice - little brother of Open Office and all was displayed well. Why is this happen under Mac Word 2011? How can I make sure all sentences end where the margin starts?

Create a new document in office 2011; copy the entire text (select all) from open office (libre); paste special in word 2011; paste as text and see if this pastes on correctly.

Also, try saving as a word 2003/4 file from open office and open this in office 2011.

Also; save as text (rtf) from open office and open this in word 2011.

Not working yet. Tried several formats so far. It seems that OO can break Thai sentences even though there are no spaces, but somehow MS Office only breaks where there are spaces using an imported rtf. But even when I opened a .doc saved as .docx where not spaces are shown it only cuts off at certain locations. Locations where spaces used to be. Got to be an issue with MS Office and cutting up long Thai sentences - they can go on for a long time without punctuation nor spaces. MS seems to only be able to cut after punctuation marks or spaces... Getting late here. Will retire soon. Thanks for all the tips so far.

Tried again today. Adjusting a .rtf which does show spaces revealing special characters seems the only way. At least like that you can remove spaces and get lines to go to the very edge. But this is a worthless solution.
