I have Trados 5.5 and a text to translate in Word.

The text looks OK, but when I open a segment with diacritic signs in Word, Trados changes them in other special characters (ü -> Ÿ, etc.).

What can I do to avoid this? Save as in another format?

Thank you very much for any suggestion!

Hi.

This might be a font issue - is the font used in the document installed on your system?



The issue of handling diacritical characters has been discussed intensively on the TW_users group - have a look at the archives there:
