Extract non-English words from string

Hi team, I'm hoping someon might be able to help

I have a column of data that is a mixture of English words and non-English text, and I need to clean out the non-English text with a calculated column, leaving just the English words separated by spaces. Here's an example of my data:


Example data:

div dir classmsrtestatefielddivdiv dataspcanvascontrol dataspcanvasdataversion1.0 dataspcontroldata123quotpositionquot58123quotzoneIndexqu


Here's an example of the output I'd like:

div dir class estate field div div data canvas control data canvas data version data control data position zone index

I am proposing to use this data source for my English words:

I'd be loading this data as a text file into my report and into a table called 'English Words'.

Any help would be greatly appreciated 🙂
