Default Need opinions on software to use for a project

I am starting up my project again.

My project, in short, is digitizing an old biblical document that has 5 languages contained within. English, Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, and German.

The Hebrew will also have some pointing call "puncta extraordinaria" (which the puncta appear both above and below the consonant). And if that were not complex enough, some of the puncta extraordinaria will have additional undefined marking as well.

I basically have very little knowledge of desktop publishing, except for some MS Word experience.

My question, what desktop publishing software would you use for a project such as this?

From what I have read thus far, a unicode program will ease my pain a little, and I may have to create some fonts along the way as well.
