Hi Gamze,

Please select Unicode when importing Turkish (not Turkish or UTF-8).


Same when importing a TMX file into Translation Memory (TM)

Delete the Terminology Database (TD) and create a new one (even with the same name) otherwise you will have duplicate terms but with corrupted characters (simply delete it from your hard disk with the delete key).
