Guess you have to translate the segment Aug 3, 2006

If the creator of the TM has put Chinese into it you have to replace it by your translation. What language code is your TM? When translating EN to Arabic you should use a TM with the respective languages or create one of your own. That applies to all CAT-tools in all versions. The TM can only offer what was put into it.

Language pair is EN>>AR Aug 3, 2006

Hi Heinrich, Hi all

The TM is already containing the respective languages (EN-AR ) but in some strings not all of them, the text is shown in chinese characters instead of Arabic characters, also some letters may be replaced by questions marks, and I really don't know why?

Thanks in advance,
Best regards

Re Aladdin Aug 3, 2006

If you use a TM someone else has compiled everything is possible. I once had a try at WinAlign with too large Wordfiles. The result was disustrous. If the TM offers rubbish you must put in your own translation and throw out the rubbish. With such TMs you have to check every entry, even if it looks ok at first glance.

I have tried to create a new TM from the uncleaned file but the result was the same.
