Hello,
I use SDL Trados Translator Workbench 2007. The text to translate is in Time New Roman 12. When I open a translation unit, this one changes bill of fount from Time New Roman to Courier New and I would like to keep Times New Roman in the source and destination segments. Thanks for help, urgent. I hope to have asked the question in the right place.

Hi. I've had this problem before. I've also had the automatic numbering suddenly go mad, but after the clean-up, everything was back to normal.

First, in Workbench go to setup and make sure "translate into target default...@ is unchecked.

Make your normal.dot fonts as Time New Roman (otherwise, open a new file, ctrl+a set language to the target language and the font to TNR
Copy source file and paste (not ctrl+v, just right click) / opeen the button that appears to the right of the last line of the text and clic "match target...)
That should do it.

Another method is to manipulate styles in Word, but that is a little bit trickier.
Success!
Tudor
