Hello all,


my Chinese translator just sent me the following email with a problem :


"As could see when exporting our file, there is a space between sentences. Yes, it’s considerate and alright in European languages, but not appropriate in Chinese – we don’t use any space between sentences. As a result, it will take us a long time to modify the translated file."



Is there any shortcut to eliminate this space between segments?

is it possible to replace "。 " with "。"?
I often do so before delivery of a translation.

Yes Vincent Oct 18, 2012

I agree with Vincent Zhou, if that's not the way to go then I don't know what is.

We´ll try that out Oct 18, 2012

Okay, if there is no other way then we will try this out. I was just wondering since this cannot be the first time this problem appeared with Asian languages.

Really that much trouble ? Oct 18, 2012

I don't see where this is a big problem, or even a problem at all... this is Word 101.
