Hi all,
I have been reading various threads on the issue of auto-converting dates and having them auto-suggested in MemoQ like I'm used to from Trados. I did not really understand them - also copying the answers is not possible because I have the following problem:
I'm trying to get MemoQ to auto-suggest dates from DE into US EN. I do not understand why a user is supposed to "program" that and/or what the programming code structure would be like.
I have the same problem from DE into UK EN where I prefer the dashes instead of the dots.
I have told MemoQ to auto-replace the number format for the "English Group" dots for commas and commas for dots but there is no thingy for dates - why is this so hard?
Does anyone have any suggestions?
