My translation direction is Enghsih to Chinese. When translating TTX, there would automatically add font definition information to specific part (such as number, term not required to translate, and part of sentence after any punctuation) in target. The common-seen font definition information added in target includes KK, MS Mincho, Lucida Mincho. This cause the text contained this kind of font definition appears strange, we have to change the font definition information into Simsun, This would make the sentence display normally. Is there any way to solve it permanently? Thanks!

Please provide the required information Oct 21, 2008

Good morning, Wenju,
You should help others to help you by providing as many details as you can, as suggested on the page used to post a new topic:

When asking for help, make sure that you:
# indicate the file format(s) involved
# specify each software package that is relevant to your posting, identifying the version with the *full* version number
# describe the step(s) or process(es) which have triggered the problem.
This will help others to help you.


Since this might be a problem that is related to a specific source file type, it could be helpful if you indicate which type of file was converted to TTX.

Finally, you may want to take into account that any support provided in this forum is voluntary.

Best regards,
Ralf

common seen problem Oct 22, 2008

Ralf, thanks for your attention. In fact, no matter what type of file was converted to TTX, the automatically added font definition makes target display abnormally when typing a Chinese after punctuation. This problem does not exits in Trados 6.5, we do not know why occurs in 7.5.
For example
Source: “df Font="Arial" This is a great restaurant”
Target:“df Font="Arial " This is restaurant,df Font="KK " Great”。

“df Font="KK ”is automatically added font definition which cause “great” display abnormally.
In this case, we have to use EmEditor to replace“KK”with“Simsun”.

I dout that users in double byte character language may figure out a good solution since this is a long haunting problem.
