I've had this problem for a while, so I'd really appreciate any suggestions:

I have Trados 6.5 and I am translating from Greek into English.
Greek words are not recognized by Concordance, and if I type in a Greek word, it becomes illegible (question marks and garbled characters) as soon as I hit Search.
So I went to Control panel -> Regional and Language Settings -> Advanced, and I selected "Greek" on the pull-down menu, where it says "Select a language to match the language version of the non-Unicode programs you want to use".
I rebooted, reopened Trados and Word, and Concordance worked great! It recognizes Greek words when I open a segment in my Word document, and when I type them in the textbox in the Concordance window, I get results.
BUT... now Word behaves strangely whenever I open a segment. The Greek source segments appear all garbled. Only in Word. When I look at the segment in Workbench it appears correctly.

Can anybody help?
