Richard,

The Hebrew word is Egypt.

For most tests you can include both Hebrew and Arabic in the same test, but
there is only a single window title so for this test you will have to have
duplicates.

I don't think side by side in the same sentence is a good idea - few people
know both languages and scripts.
