Tag Editor problem when inputting text

Hi. I have a problem on TagEditor v8.0.0.822

I'm working on a translation piece from Japanese into Traditional Chinese. I face a problem where TagEditor would automatically change the fonts on the Target Segment into either a Unicode font or a Japanese font.

I used the following method to setup the font settings. After creating a new TM, I go to file > setup > fonts TAB. I chose the target default font to my desired font. i.e Mingliu.

For example, the default target font is Mingliu (a 2 byte font), but once you start inputting into the target segment in the Tageditor, the font will be changed to Arial Unicode MS.

This not only made the content of the translation segment unreadable, it also populates the TM with un-necessary "font change" macros.

Please help.
It affects all my Asian Pacific 2 byte languages.
Thanks in advance.

Try switching off "Show display formatting" in Filter Settings May 12, 2008

Open the Filter Settings (located in the SDL International program group as a subgroup of Trados) and select the proper Word version. Go to "Display formatting and font mapping" and deselect both "Show display formatting" and "Use display font mapping". Restart your Trados application and reopen the DOC file in Tageditor. Do not use the previously created ttx (if any).

HTH

Cannot work... May 12, 2008

I am not translating a Word file. My source file is converted from FrameMaker -> MIF -> TTX. Therefore, the solution that you have suggested did not resolve the problem.

Thanks.
Further help if possible.

Source and target language set correctly in S-Tagger? May 12, 2008

Is your TM possibly converted from a pervious (non-unicode) Trados veersion?

S-Tagger settings and previous TM May 13, 2008

Language settings on S-Tagger are correct. I even tried setting both "150" and "220" on the field for "Source Marker Length".

I did a upgrade from Trados 6.5 -> Trados Pro 2007. But TM is new.

When inputting on the target segment area, the characters would become "garbage". I only realised that the font is changed when I copy the whole target segment into word where I can see the font settings in the style controls.
