All Cyr fonts in Trados Fonts Table displayed as non-readable characters. Because of this even when I choose the required font in my Word window for the text I enter, when segment is closed - all letters change to these "strange lines".
It is rather urgent as the deadling is in a few hours. Text is translated but the font is the problem.

This is not a Trados alone problem May 5, 2004

but a problem with the formatting of your source document.
Such behaviour was handled before here, so you can use the search function to get further information.

If your document is translated, clean it up in Word (with the proper macro, ALT+F8, tw4winClean.Main) and replace the corrupted font with the proper one afterwards.
If your characters are still corrupted, use Search and Replace to get rid of this.

Please bear in mind, that your TM won´t ber updated in this way - make any changes then prior to clean up.

I´m in hurry now, so I cannot explain this phenomenon here more detailed - but it was dealed with before on ProZ.
