I have a TM which for strange reasons stored the source text in an unlikely and not recognized font, and I would like to replace this font as a whole using database maintenance, I tried a few things but no idea how to do it.

I also tried exporting the tm to txt and have a look inside but trados does not store font information together with segments... can you help me?

also, how can I identify this strange source font? - if you think you can help me I can send you the file
thanks!

Dear Miss Elena

I have the same problem in arabic TMs but in the target font not the source, u can send me the TM so i can check it,and tell you my suggestions or solution, it is not recommended to send the full TM, you can send me a sample TM that contains some corrupted TUs. (shozayen@gmail.com)

Best regards
