Does someone know why Trados changes the \'less than or equal to\' sign into \'equal\' (=) sign? (Sorry I can\'t write the symbol as it becomes corrupted when submitting the posting).

The sign changes during pretranslating and also when I open the TU manually!

I am using T5.5. and Word 2002 (XP).



Thanks!!!

P.S. Same happens, of course, with the \'greater than or equal to\' sign



Also, does anyone know whether the discussion forum still exists on Translationzone? I can\'t find it....

is it changing the sign in the source or in the target segment Nov 28, 2002

Hi Minna Ruska!



Is Trados changing this sign in the source segment (in the blue box) or in the target segment (in the yellow box)?

Also the source changes which I find very peculiar!

Font? Nov 29, 2002

Sounds like a font problem to me.

Agree with Karin Nov 29, 2002

it sounds very much like a font problem. Try changing the font of your source text to something really standard (like Arial or Times New Roman) before you start. See if that helps.
