MS recently released an update to correct some Romanian characters (with different Unicode codes) which were not included in the Times New Roman and Arial fonts. Everything is fine, but I now have the problem of having to replace the old characters with new ones in the old Trados TMs and I wonder whether there is an easy way to do it. The only solution I could think of was to export the TM in txt format, open it in Word, replace the characters and then importing it again.

Is there an easier way to do that in the TMW or in the TMX files?

Many thanks,

TMX is not much different from txt Dec 4, 2006

TMX on its own is also just text format. The only advantage is it's ability to retain formatting information.

Try the maintenance function. It allows you to do SR in the TM. Export a copy of the TM first to be on the safe side.
