Word DOC File got Corrupted

I was making an assignment from last week and just completed it yesterday. Due to the power cut off, I can't save that file. But, today when I opened, all the 550 pages are there in the file. But, the information seems to be corrupted, as it is is in some other sign language type or I don't know what's that. Please help to recover the file, I want to get it done asap.

Thanks in Advance.

Is this the only document showing the problem?  If not, you may have been hit with ransomware.

If it is in DOCX format, copy it, rename the extension to ZIP, and unzip it.  You may be able to recover the text from one of the files.

If nothing above helps, you should download a trial version of any repair tool and see if it will be able to recover your document or at least its parts. If not, your document is probably lost for good. If yes, consider buying a full version. It's worth it.

Have you made a copy of your file? Performing any operations over this file might make it worse and worse until it will be irreparable.
Do tests only over the copy, not an original file!
