I'm having a problem with MemoQ, the charachters in arabic don't show and are showing as some code.

Am I missing a plugin I should install, I'm running MemoQ 2014.


Kind regards,

You may want to make sure (under Options > Appearance) the font selected for the editor is capable of displaying Arabic characters:
