Dear all,

While translating a PPT file from English into Arabic using Tageditor, Trados replaces Arabic characters with squares. In other words, I type the Arabic characters and they appear just as squares in the whole target segment.
I failed to find the reason nor a solution.

Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Many thanks!
