I pulled just about every trick out of my arsenal, and but the problem is still there. All the font mapping settings in Trados are for Arial Cyr or Arial CYR, but it doesn't make any difference!

Please, help!

Which version? Jun 17, 2005

Hi Vladimir,
Can't help you directly, as I have no experience with cyrillic fonts. However, it will be helpful to quote your Trados version (check the full version number under Help - About...), and the document format (Word? HTML? DTP - if yes, which?) where this problem arises.

Best regards,
Ralf

Check the formating of Word-document (if this is it) Jun 17, 2005

Be sure, no fonts are used you don't have on your system. Check, if no Chinese or Japanese formating is used.
Set the language in your document to Russian.
AND DO NOT CLEAN IN WORKBENCH! Use the macro tw4winClean.Main (press ALT+F8, search for it an let it run). Be aware, that then no update of your TM is made and that you need to repeat this macor for each header and footer and any textbox you have in your text.
All this asumes you are refering to Word. For all above advices the Trados version does not have any meaning.

Use the search function on this forum for "garbaged characters" or similar - we have had this topic many times before, maybe you'll find more advices then.

Regards
Jerzy
