Hello,

i have 3 issues with Fluency now when translating to Hebrew:

1. quote marks automatically show as low curly quotes (whether it's within a word or at the closing of double quotes), so acronyms look ridiculous because in Hebrew low curly quotes are not used with acronyms, and double quotes definitely look ridiculous because low curly quotes are only used when the quote itself is from the bible or of religious context ... otherwise we use regular high quotes.

2. anything I write in English within the Hebrew text is processed in mirror form... example: "butter" shows as "rettub" within the target Hebrew text...

Please change the settings in Preferences Feb 24, 2017

Hi,

I can only help you, hopefully, regarding item 1. You should ask the developer for support regarding the other two items.

So, please go to Tools/Preferences/Keyboard Shortcuts/Other Options (the left lower part of the window) and disable "Replace straight quotes with curly".

I hope this will help you.

Regards,
Georgi

Absolutely brilliant! Feb 24, 2017

Thank you, this "check" option is so easy to miss!..

If you dont mind I have another question...
How can I reset the setting to default?
I tried reinstalling and deleting the fluency folder in the user/NAME/appdata directory but it didn't do the trick...

The only option Feb 27, 2017

that I found refers to the keyboard shortcuts (Preferences/Settings/Keyboard Shortcuts/Reset to Default). I am not sure this is what you are looking for.
